Avaya 1220 Config via DHCP
« on: May 09, 2013, 08:35:47 AM »
We have just brought 1500 new Avaya 1220 phones and need to find a way to get them onto the network via DHCP.

I have a 2004 and an older 1220 phone that uses DHCP option 128 with no problems. The string used with that option was...


Now we have a box of 1220 that I think are on a new release and may need to use the Nortel-i2004-B class (not sure if thats the right term)
I have found some information from different websites and I have replaced the above string with the following.


When I boot up the phone it just cycles through "starting bootc" and "Starting DHCP". Any idea what I need to do to get this working?

You can use either DHCP option to boot the IP phones regardless of software release.

If the IP phone is just sitting at "Starting DHCP" then it usually means it's not getting the correct DHCP options. You might want to try and factory reset the IP phone and see if that helps - perhaps these are refurbished handsets and they were previously configured with a voice VLAN, etc.


Good Luck!
