The List.xml file defines an XML object that contains a list of
background images. The List.xml file is stored in the following subdirectory on
the TFTP server:
/Desktops/320x196x4 for Cisco Unified IP Phone 7941, 7942, 7961, and 7962
If you are manually creating the directory structure and the List.xml
file, you must ensure that the directories and files can be accessed by the
user\CCMService, which is used by the TFTP service.
For more information, see
"Software Upgrades" chapter in
Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration
The List.xml file can include up to 50 background images. The
images are in the order that they appear in the Background Images menu on the
phone. For each image, the List.xml file contains one element type, called
ImageItem. The ImageItem element includes these two attributes:
Image—Uniform resource identifier (URI) that specifies where the
phone obtains the thumbnail image that will appear on the Background Images
menu on a phone.
URL—URI that specifies where the phone obtains the full size image.
The following example shows a List.xml file that defines two
images. The required Image and URL attributes must be included for each image.
The TFTP URI that is shown in the example is the only supported method for
linking to full size and thumbnail images. HTTP URL support is not provided.
<CiscoIPPhoneImageList><ImageItem Image=”TFTP:Desktops/320x196x4/TN-Fountain.png” URL=”TFTP:Desktops/320x196x4/Fountain.png”/>
<ImageItem Image=”TFTP:Desktops/320x196x4/TN-FullMoon.png” URL=”TFTP:Desktops/320x196x4/FullMoon.png”/>
The Cisco Unified IP Phone firmware includes a default
background image. This image is not defined in the List.xml file. The default
image is always the first image that appears in the Background Images menu on
