    Global Directory Custom Entries

    dafeagin New Member

      I need to populate the global directory for 6 seperate Netvanta 7100's with the same data.

      Is it possible to upload or import a text file to the global directory instead of manually entering them?

          dafeagin,

             Not 100% sure this is kind of a guess on my part as I haven't tried it however I believe the following may do what you need. First on a system that already has all the information in it go to IP Phone Globals, global directory, and click the Save Global at the bottom.  This will create a file named adtran_phonebook.csv in the adtran folder. You can FTP to you 7100 and get a copy of adtran\adtran_phonebook.csv from one which is already built then FTP to the other systems and then upload the file as adtran_phonebook.csv to the other systems and then go into IP Phone Globals, Global Files, and the following to the end of the ADTRAN adtran_customer.txt:

          SystemPhonebook adtran_phonebook.csv

           

              I do not know if there is a similar method for Polycom phones or not.

              This worked for the phones.

              However, it does not reflect on the Global Directory list on the 7100.  As long as no one saves the global directory from the 7100 interface, it does not matter.

               

              Do you know of a way to reflect the changes in the adtran_phonebook.csv in the 7100 interface?

                  David,

                      I do not know of an easy way, that list is built from the actual users built on the system itself it does not populate from the file it populates the file.  You maybe to do something with phantom users and creative dial plans where you could copy and paste the config via the CLI but it could cause licensing issues depnding upon how many users total between the 6 devices.
