I have a 6301 and a two GRP2612P and two GRP2613 phones. I initially used zero config to set everything up and it all is working. I then signed up for GDMS and added each phone manually to GDMS and they were detected and showing online.
In reading the forums and the GDMS users manual 220.127.116.11 , it looks like I need to make a decision on which method to manage the phones because overwrites can occur.
For example, on page 46 of the GDMS manual it says:
Settings configured via other means (e.g. endpoint device web portals, Zero Config provisioning,
etc.) will not be synchronized to GDMS.
On page 50 they talk about “Synchronize Device Local Configuration” which seems to state that the local configuration of the device can be synced/uploaded to GDMS, and the local config info overrides any info already in GDMS.
So it seems then what I should do is now that I have the devices defined in GDMS is to “Synchronize Device Local Configuration” for all of them, and then going forward, just use GDMS to make changes and push them to the devices. If that’s the case, then where can I get definitive list of P codes which I assume I can enter in the device config under Settings, or do the tabs under settings for a device contain the exact same parameters if connected to the phone w/ a browser (it looks like it)?
The reason I am asking this is before I commit to GDMS, I want to make sure I know what’s going to happen. My first attempt at using GDMS I tried to upgrade a GRP2612P that was flagged as needing an upgrade, failed w/ an error of “Fail to get the file” and took the phone offline. I’ll have to physically go to the phone now to see what happened.
So, what’s the general recommendation on how to proceed in my situation w/ GDMS?
