Re: Put Image Background to IP Phone

Just use the Cisco Phone Designer for that (free download):

Re: Put Image Background to IP Phone

Phone designer is nice, but it's really only for one phone.

You can certainly have more than one image available to the IP phones, but users have to set the backgrounds by hand.

I used autohotkey and a script that hammers thru all the IPs in the subnet for our phones, just did it off-hours to push the image to the phones.  Mine was easy, one image... but autohotkey can be tailored to any setup.  It wasn't easy, took a lot of trial-and-error, and I had to use some GNU tools in windows, but I got it working and it's pretty consistent.  Just a PITA, I'm hoping that with v8 Cisco will have a method to administer things like ring tones and background images.

Re: Put Image Background to IP Phone

Hello, can you explain detailed how to execute the autohotkey script? where is the script is executed? how can you hammer a range of phones?

Re: Put Image Background to IP Phone

Please Google AutoHotKey... AutoHotKey is a scripting language, I wrote the software myself.  The script is executed on my PC...  I hammer a range of phones via the script.  I specify an IP range, and the script increments the IP and tries the set of commands on every single IP within the range I specify.

Re: Put Image Background to IP Phone

I appreciate this post was a while ago, however, I'm trying to do exactly the same thing but I'm getting stuck.

If I use wget (for windows), I can get the script to change the background on my phone no problem. The part I don't get is how you apply this to multiple (5000+) users without manipulating the script to account for every un/password?

I'm also a bit lost  with AutoHotKey and how to code the IP ranges?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Re: Put Image Background to IP Phone

Hi James

Re: usernames and passwords, you can create a user on CUCM and then associate that to all the phones on the system. Then you just need one username/password.

I've not used AutoHotKey but the principles would be the same in any script I guess - you need to get a list of IPs from somewonder and loop through them. Different phones might need different format images etc as well.

Or take the lazy route :http://www.ipcommute.co.uk/cisco-ucm/5-phone-customiser-for-cisco-ucm-evaluation.html
