IP Phone Background Image CME

Follow the process to change background Image for phones connected to CME.

Lets take 7961 IP phone as an example.

First of all load List.xml and Background Image files on a TFTP server. I would recommend you do it on a Call manager if it’s accessible from CME router. Just go in OS Admin and upload all files at root of CUCM TFTP.

List.xml will be like this:

<ImageItem Image=”TFTP:Desktops/320x196x4/small.png”

At CME router do the following:

  • Ping the tftp server and check connectivity
  • Check if there is a directory on flash like Desktops/320x196x4/List.xml if not then make a directory
  • Create directory in flash “mkdir flash:/Desktops/320x196x4”
  • Copy files across

copy tftp:// flash:Desktops/320x196x4/List.xml
copy tftp:// flash:Desktops/320x196x4/large.png
copy tftp:// flash:Desktops/320x196x4/small.png

  • Show the path to ephones

tftp-server flash:Desktops/320x196x4/List.xml
tftp-server flash:Desktops/320x196x4/large.png
tftp-server flash:Desktops/320x196x4/small.png

  • Reset ephones
  • Go into Phone Settings à Preferences à Background image and select the new image
  • Open debug tftp events and you will see following on router

  1. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours as of late, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It?s beautiful value sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will likely be much more useful than ever before.
