Background Information

The Cisco 7970 IP Phone calculates the time displayed on its panel based on these two parameters:

  • Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)/Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) converted from the current time on Cisco CallManager Express

  • Time zone configuration for the Cisco 7970 IP Phone on Cisco CallManager Express

Cisco CallManager Express passes these two parameters to the Cisco 7970 IP Phone during phone initialization time.

Configuration

Complete these steps on the Cisco CallManager Express in order to display the correct time:

  1. Configure the type 7970 command under the ephone.

    ephone  1
     device-security-mode none
     mac-address 0017.59E7.492C
     type 7970
     button  1:1
  2. Configure the time-zone command under the Telephony service.

    telephony-service
     max-ephones 5
     max-dn 5
     ip source-address 10.1.0.1 port 2000
     auto assign 1 to 5
     time-zone 8
     dialplan-pattern 1 ... extension-length 4 extension-pattern 9000
     voicemail 6000
     max-conferences 12 gain -6
     transfer-system full-consult
     create cnf-files version-stamp 7960 Feb 05 2009 12:44:03
    !
  3. Configure the create cnf-files command under the Telephony service in order to implement the change in step 1 and 2.

    CME-CUE(config-telephony)#create cnf-files
    CNF file creation is already On
    Updating CNF files
    
    CNF files update complete

Verify

Comlete these steps in order to reset the Cisco 7970 IP Phone:

  1. Press the Settings button on the Cisco 7970 IP Phone.

  2. Enter the **#** key sequence on the phone keypad in order to reset the phone.

    The correct time displays on the Cisco 7970 IP Phone after the reset.

Troubleshoot

Complete these steps if the time displayed on the Cisco 7970 IP Phone is incorrect:

  • Verify the phone configuration on Cisco CallManager Express.

  • Display the 7970 configuration file on Cisco CallManager Express. The name of the file is xmldefault7970.cnf.xml, which is located in the system:/its/ directory. Complete these steps in order to display the configuration file:

    1. Log in to Cisco CallManager Express.

    2. Complete these steps in order to display the 7970 configuration file:

      1. Issue the cd system: command.

      2. Issue the cd its command.

      3. Issue the more xmldefault7970.cnf.xml command in order to dump the configuration.

    3. Verify that the time zone parameter is correctly configured . The output of the command is shown here:

      CME-CUE#more xmldefault7970.cnf.xml

    4. Complete these steps in order to verify that Cisco CallManager Express successfully sends the 7970 configuration file to the Cisco 7970 IP Phone:

      1. Log in to Cisco CallManager Express.

      2. Issue the debug tftp events command.

      3. Issue the terminal monitor command.

      4. Reset the Cisco 7970 IP Phone.

        This output shows the results of the debug tftp events command. The bold text indicates the phone has successfully received its configuration file.
