Snom Phones Address Book question vs Cisco Call manager

Hello everyone,

 

This place might not be relevant to the question I'm asking but I have been in contact with Snom support and they seem busy. I have a critical request on the possibility of importing Cisco Call Manager address book into 200 Snom 700X phones in mass deployment .

 

The number is not certain yet but it could be even more. what I have dig around about this until now is I found there is away to do it through XCAP server, I'm trying to deploy one using Kamailio on Linux but it's very difficult for me as i'm a newbie to Linux.

 

The other method which I got from Snom support is this link but with no further comment on how this works

http://wiki.snom.com/Features/Mass_Deployment/Setting_Files/XML/Directory

 

I have setup the phone settings but i'm not sure how the phone will acquire the address book from Cisco call manager.

 

Do I need to setup a server in order for phones to acquire the address book in XML directory format?

 

 

I appreciate your help.

Yea this is really not the right place to ask this question... I have heard that the snom forum will be alive soon. Just one idea :-P You can actually use snom ONE as a pure provisioning server for snom phones. You'll have to tweak the templates a little bit, so that the outbound proxy etc are pointing to the other device. This will make it possible to provision snom phones with multicast PnP or even with the new XML-RPC.

What format do I need to import the address book into Snom One. and what settings do I need to do in order for phones to get address Book from Snom One.

 

also in case this works, will the address book be saved into phones or would it only have access to it on Snom One. ?

 

Thanks

There are several ways; I believe the most interesting should be ActiveSync. But you can also do one-time imports e.g. with CSV.

 

The phones generally use a stripped-down version of LDAP. The data is kept on the PBX.

So if the Ldap server is down or not accessible, the address book is not available? I don't think this is a good idea <_<

 

Could you please just give me a hint on how to start with this XML Directory deployment , I created an IIS webserver and set the phones settings to the following

 

http://192.168.1.100/dummy.htm?settings=save&xcap_tbook_sync_interval=60&xcap_server_name=192.168.1.192&xcap_server_port=8080&store_settings&=save

 

xcap_tbook_sync_interval!: 60

xcap_server_name!: 192.168.1.192

xcap_server_port!: 8080

xcap_directory_auid!: xml

xcap_dir_doc_name!: directory.xml

xcap_via_tls!: false

 

My phone's IP address is 100, the IIS server is 192. but when I run packet trace I can see the http get request coming in this format which I'm not sure if IIS would handle it. the IIS server responses with file not found. but the xml directory file is there.

I would be grateful for your help

Well for this you really have to wait until the snom forum is back up again.

 

but this is a PoC, PoC customer won't really wait until the forum is up again :( .

 

I have made some progress but i'm not sure if it would really satisfy the client. I have copied the tbook xml script example on the mass deployment page into settings.xml file which I downloaded from the phone (in XML file type) and replaced it with the portion where the tbook settings are located.

 

<tbook>

<item context="line1" type="none" index="0">

<name>Adrian</name>

<number>42965</number>

</item>

<item context="active" type="colleagues" index="1">

<name>Roland</name>

<number>16424</number>

</item>

...

<item context="line12" type="friends" index="99">

<name>Suzy</name>

<number>78371</number>

</item>

</tbook>

 

 

---------

 

I saved these into a file called settings.xml and loaded it onto the IIS local site, then ran this script on my Internet browser

 

http://192.168.1.100/dummy.htm?settings=save&setting_server=http://192.168.1.192:8080/settings.xml&store_settings&=save

 

This have copied the addressbook settings xml URL into the phone's tbook, but it just requires me to manually reboot the phone for settings to take effect.

 

Is there anyway to restart the phone with the script on Internet explorer?

 

Thanks
