Kristan Posted May 1, 2008 Report Share Posted May 1, 2008 Hi guys, I thought I'd post up the installation procedures for our generic polycom installs to help people starting out for the first time, but also so anyone comment on good/bad practice and what they think? Obviously this is for the UK and biased towards our way of doing things, but any criticism is appreciated! On DNS server, setup A record for PBX On DHCP server, set option 66 to IP of PBX Download and install latest PBXnSIP build and UK prompts (unzip to audio_en folder and overwrite) Delete noise.wav and create a 0k file called noise.wav Login and under admin settings, change:System name Timezone to London Admin password Process Affinity mask to 1 (I know you don't need to, but I like to) [*]Set license [*]Under logging, set: Log level to 7 Log length to 500 SIP Logging: other messages Yes [*]Edit domain settings and set primary name to DNS name, aliases to localhost and IP [*]Enter domain admin and setup trunks (in our case a SIP Registration for SIP and a SIP Gateway for the ISDN gateway) [*]Setup dialplan to route operator and emergency calls to ISDN, all other calls to SIP [*]Create extensions/hunt groups etc. as customer requires. Make sure extensions are set to permanent assignment [*]Edit domain settings and set default dialplan to the one you created [*]Download latest polycom firmware and bootloader and place in TFTP folder (along with associated files) [*]Place polycom config files in html folder (these are our customised ones - you can skip this if you want standard pbxnsip/polycom ones) [*]Plug a phone in, set the provisioning mode to TFTP and sit back and make sure it updates and registers correctly [*]Test outbound calls route correctly and inbound ones present caller ID / called ID correctly [*]Job done!
