Mass updating Polycom default passwords?

Does anyone know if it would be possible to use endpoint manager to update all of the default passwords on Polycom phones from 456 to something else? If not, is there any way to do this in bulk rather than on each phone?

if your polycom setup is similar to mine than yes you can! Here is what I have setup, for each polycom phone I have a file 0004f2XXXXXX.cfg (mac address of the phone) that looks like this.


in the phone1.cfg that it calls I have added this line (inside a set of these < >) at the end changing the default password to 12345

device device.set=“1” device.auth.localAdminPassword=“12345” device.auth.localAdminPassword.set=“1”/

Make that change and restart the phones. Hope this helps!

Sweet thanks, I am using endpoint manager in the FreePBX distro and mine is a little different and so far I have not gotten it to work yet. Below is what I have. I have tried moving this line around but no luck so far, will keep trying.

    <device.auth device.auth.localUserPassword="">
      <device.auth.localUserPassword device.auth.localUserPassword.set="0"> 
    <device device.set="1" device.auth device.auth.localAdminPassword="12345" device.auth.localAdminPassword.set="1" />
    <device.em device.em.power="">
      <device.em.power device.em.power.set="0">

Code didn’t come through.

OK I got it working, below is the working code. I also changed the default user password while I was at it. After making the change to the template I needed to rebuild the config and reboot the phone from the endpoint device list.

Thank you for the help.

glad I could help.
