Configuring a Phone Image

Step 1: Image
Create a image with the following size:

Phone                 Image Size        TFTP Path
7941/7961       320×196           Desktops/320x196x4
7942/7962       320×196           Desktops/320x196x4
7945/7965       320×212           Desktops/320x212x16
7975                    320×216           Desktops/320x216x16
7970/7971      320×212           Desktops/320x212x12

The Thumbnail image is the above divided by 4.  This example is of a 7945, so the thumbnail image is 320/4=80, 212/4=53

You can use ImRe to resize the image 🙂

Step 2: Download XML File from CUCM

on the CUCM OS, navigate to “TFTP File Management” and search for Desktops (directory)

my result showed “Desktops/640x480x24”

on your PC enter the following command

C:>tftp get Desktops640x480x24List.xml
Transfer successful: 1747 bytes in 1 second(s), 1747 bytes/s


 Step 3: edit file

edit the file by replacing the location to be Desktops/320x212x16/ and add new Image name

<ImageItem Image=”TFTP:Desktops/320x212x16/new_Image_thumb.png” URL=”TFTP:Desktops/320x212x16/new_image_large.png“/>

Step 4

save + upload XML and Images to TFTP

Step 5
Restart TFTP Service

One thought on “Configuring a Phone Image

  1. another way to download the Phone Image is via SFTP, via the CUCM Cli interface to view files, type
    “file view activelog /cm/tftpdata/Desktops/320x212x12/*”

    to download the entire folder:
    “file get activelog /cm/tftpdata/Desktops/320x212x12/*”

    I would recommend FreeFTPd as the SFTP server
