Refer to Table 9-13 for a list of language codes. Selecting the appropriate
language code ensures that the phone displays the text in the proper language
(e.g. abbreviations for days and months, and messages indicating that the
phone is requesting service or indicating that service is unavailable).
Step 9 Connect the Ethernet cable into the data jack on the back of the IP phone.
The phone downloads the latest bootROM and firmware from the ShoreTel
server and in the process, reboots several times. When the phone displays the
date and time, the boot and upgrade process is complete.
9.8 Configuring Automatic VLAN Assignment via
You can configure an IP phone to automatically determine its VLAN id via DHCP. When
the phone boots for the first time, it will acquire an IP address via DHCP similar to any
other network device. However, the DHCP response will also specify (using a proprietary
DHCP option), the VLAN id for the phone to use. Then, the phone will release the IP
address originally assigned to it and will reboot. After reboot, all packets are tagged with
the VLAN id specified in the original DHCP response.
The following phones are unaffected by this features: AP100 and AP110.
The Automatic VLAN Assignment feature is not configured through ShoreWare Director.
Configuration changes are performed at the DHCP server. Parameters related to Automatic
VLAN Assignment (along with their supporting text) have been italicized in the procedure
that follows to make them easier to spot.
