    Hi

    We are using Grandstream Phones. I have a good template and config but I am seeing that 3CX is not rewriting the phone configuration file (cfgxxxxxxxxxxxx) when we select "Reprovision Phones"

    3CX does rewrite the phone's configuration file if we change anything in the extension configuration, but with over 200 phones I don't want to have to make a change to all those extensions then reprovision. This looks like a fault to be as it seems obvious that the configuration file for the phone should be written before rebooting the phone!

    We are on the latest version 3CX SP 5 33528.640

    Thanks
    Millsey.

    Someone gave me this tip recently...

    Goto Settings
    Phone provisioning
    Change daylight savings checkbox. Hit apply.
    The CFg files are recreated.
    Change daylight savings back to what you want. Hit apply.
    CFg files are written again.
    Now reprovisioning the phones.

    Much easier than touching every extension...
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
