Provisioning Files

An IP set can be configured via a combination of different files from a (TFTP or HTTP) provisioning server. For example, you may have a system.prv file with generic configuration, and then a 1140E.prv file to enable Bluetooth on 1140e sets only. If a provisioning server is deployed, the IP set receives it's address via DHCP Option 66 (TFTP server). If the server address or URL is prefixed with "http://", the IP set will retrieve the files using HTTP instead. Only a single provisioning server is supported.

A summary of each type of provision file is as follows:

From UNIStim firmware release 3.0, the Node and TN values can also be assigned by recognising a particular IP set's MAC address. Use the format: "reg=MACaddr, CallServerType, ConnectServer, NodeID, TN". An example of a valid Node and TN provision string that could be included in any .PRV file follows:

reg=CCF954E08A69 CS1K S1 5881 248-0-00-00;

See Info Block Parameters and Auto Provisioning for further details.

An example of using hierarchal provision files using system, zone, and type provisioning files is shown below. Not all parameters need to be specified, only non-default values.
