cisco mass deployment

Cisco Mass Deployment

A work in progress................NOT complete so help instead of complain......I work with Media Wiki all day and this TIKI thing is much different...

See also Cisco 7940 7960 Single Step Upgrade for some other configuration ideas

Cisco phones like to operate in a client server setup. The phone being the client looks to the
server for information on how to run. This is great for mass deployment but not so cool for single
phone installs. Well the good news is that everyone can use these methods fo seting up
the phones.

Things you need to have
  • DHCP server
  • TFTP server
  • Config Files


Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is the fun little tool that gives you an IP address down at the coffee
house. It is very easy to work with but has some more advanced tools to aid us in our work.


DHCP must be setup to give the phones a TFTP server and proper networking information. DNS is prefered
but it can be hard coded,




ddns-update-style none;

subnet netmask {
option routers;
option subnet-mask;
option domain-name "internal.lan";
option domain-name-servers ns.internal.lan;

range dynamic-bootp;
default-lease-time 21600;
max-lease-time 43200;

host Phone01 {
hardware ethernet 12:34:56:78:AB:CD;
