Editing Polycom Basefile to include 802.1x parameters


(John) #1

I’m trying to edit my Basefile in Endpoint Manager to add some settings to all my Polycom’s. Using the instructions on https://support.polycom.com/content/dam/polycom-support/products/voice/polycom-uc/other-documents/en/802-1x-tb57352.pdf

I see that I need to edit:
File: device.cfg
section ???
parameter
device.net.dot1x.enable
device.net.dot1x.method
device.net.dot1x.identity
device.net.dot1x.password

I’ve tried entering these values using the Add Entry button in EPM Basefile editor but I’m not sure what to use for the section and even I put anything in there, it doesn’t seam to “take” after clicking on “change basefile”
Also device.cfg doesn’t show up in the file list
just MAC.cfg, MAC-Features.cfg, Ext.cfg, SIP-Ineropp.cfg

Anyone have any experience with these devices in EPM?

Using EPM 14.0.43.13

Found the solution. I had to add it to the MAC-Features.cfg section. Also had to create a parent section for device.net

  <device
    
    <device.net
     device.net.dot1x.enabled.set="1"
     device.net.dot1x.enabled="1"
     device.net.dot1x.method.set="1"
     device.net.dot1x.method="2"
     device.net.dot1x.method="EAP-PEAPv0-MSCHAPv2"
     device.net.dot1x.identity.set="1"
     device.net.dot1x.identity="polycom450"
     device.net.dot1x.password.set="1"
     device.net.dot1x.password="****************"
     >
    </device.net>
  </device>
