Manually configure the provisioning information for the Polycom VVX phone

Prerequisites

  • Telephony > Plugin > All permission

The most common method to configure the phones to discover the phone settings stored on the Genesys Cloud Edge is to enable DHCP on the phone. For more information, see Enable DHCP on the phone to discover the phone settings from the Edge.

You can also manually configure three settings on the physical phone for the phone to retrieve its configuration settings from the Edge:

  • Set the DHCP Boot Server to static
  • Set the Provisioning Server Type to HTTPS
  • Set the Provisioning Server Address to the provisioning URL

Note: Phone provisioning requires that a Polycom VVX base setting exists in Genesys Cloud.

The provisioning URL for a local Edge is either:

  • The IP address and port of a local Edge. (8088 for HTTP or 8089 for HTTPS)
  • The domain address of the Edge if a DNS record exists for your Edges, for example, Customer-Domain.com/GenesysCloudEdges

For Genesys Cloud Voice use the appropriate VVX phone provisioning endpoint address for your region:

Troubleshoot a Polycom VVX

If you feel the phone’s settings have been misconfigured you can put the phone back to a factory default state. Doing so clears all settings allowing you to re-configure the DHCP and provision server settings in the phone.

  1. Press the Menu button.
  2. Press the right arrow five times for Settings.
  3. Press 2 for Advanced.
  4. Enter the Admin password and press the Enter soft key.
    (default = 456, or default = 1234 if previously provisioned in Genesys Cloud)
  5. Press 1 for Admin Settings.
  6. Press 5 for Reset to Defaults.
  7. Press 3 for Reset Dev(ice) Settings.
  8. Press the Yes soft key.

If you do not know the Administrator password, try the default password “456” or the common Genesys Cloud default password “1234.” If these default passwords don’t work, reset the phone to the default factory settings. The default factory setting for the administrator password is “456.”
