@DAN - TFTP Problem

Dan, TFTP is pretty much replaced by HTTP, meaning, if your phones can run firmware 9.2.1 they will first attempt to download their stuff through http port 6970, including their config file, locale, sip dial rules, etc. In fact, try downloading something from your CM TFTP repository using a URL such as http://CUCM-IP:6970/SEP112233445566.cnf.xml

That should take care of the TFTP problem =)

I bit the bullet in the end and now run a separate VMware ESX environment on a separate Server.

I think it was an undocumented bug. All services appears to work however TFTP just wouldn't work (it said "Started" with the GUI and CLI tools). I forget now what RTMT said however it was pretty generic -- as if... there was no problem to report.

I never got around to trying version 7.1.5 on Xen
I understand that 8.6.2 is quite a "rushed" build -- e.g. there's a problem whereby "Dependency Records" doesn't show anything under certain tabs, now this to me sounds like testing didn't truly take place; so i wouldn't be surprised if other sections such as my TFTP problem were "missed" also Razz

Regards, Dan.

Don't seem to have any issues with TFTP. Tried with a 3rd party TFTP client and it connects without problem. Also monitoring TFTP within RTMT everything looks normal.

Did you check your TFTP service just to make sure it is running?
And check your syslogs for any errors related to TFTP.

Possibly there is a difference with the version of CUCM.
How did it go with 7.1?

I have only tried this setup with soft phones and it works. Don't know if the way a soft phone uses TFTP is different from a real phone. But at least it works. Will try shortly with a real phone or a plain tftp client.

I have followed your post right up to "Convert VMWare disk to a flat disk" from this point i used Xen GUI to do the rest, double clicked and off we go. this works pretty much perfectly however I've come across the weirdest "bug".

Im running CUCM 8.6.2 with XenServer 6.0.2

Everything works perfectly apart from TFTP, now this is a large problem as you can imagine xP

Even via different TFTP clients (TFTPd and Windows7 inbuilt) im unable to download anything! i just get timeout.... running within VMWare Player (where this CUCM was initially installed) the system works perfectly!

If you could shine any light on this odd problem i would be very grateful XD currently in the process of installing in VMware Player to see if that works/portsover without problems Smile
