Validating Phone Records

When you choose Validate Phones, the system runs a validation routine to check that the CSV data file and Cisco Unified CallManager Bulk Administration (BAT) phone template have populated all required fields, such as device pool and locations. The validation also checks for discrepancies with the first node database.

Before You Begin

You must have a BAT phone template for the devices that you are adding. You can use a master phone template with multiple lines to add phones that have a single line or several lines. See the "Master Phone Templates" section for more information.

You must have a data file in comma separated variable (CSV) format that contains the unique details for the phones or other IP telephony devices.
