Question about Avaya 4610SW

Not booting from DHCP

I have 4620 and 4610SW phones on my network that boot from the DHCP however ten recently purchased 4610SW phones refuse to boot from the DHCP.

I have tried * reset, mute + reset/clear.
Nothing seems to be working, the phones dont seem to be taking any input via the interface, the gui doesnt display the option to reset/program the phones (*).

    I just went and double checked, the tftp server is up and running.

    The thing is when after the phones boot or attempy yo boot from the DHCP the next message that is shown is "no filesv"
    My consultant overlooked this message...

  • NnickGM Jun 13, 2008

    I have a consultant here at my organisation, he overlooked that bit of information when I pointed it out to him.

    I can see the TFTP server up and running on my management server. However the DHCP configuration is sent by my domain controller server.

    Is it that I need to run the TFTP server on the domain control server?

  • NnickGM Jun 13, 2008

    Just tried that, it didnt work...
    The thing is the phones seem to refuse any form of input, when you think it taking the input there is no response...

  • NnickGM Jun 13, 2008

    Pressing mute on a working phone brings up that list of information.
    However these phones do not respond to mute commands.

    I have even tried anpother option of holding the hold button...

    We are running an Avaya site/PBX system

  • NnickGM Jun 13, 2008

    They do not give the "*" prompt while it is booting.

    I think its IP Office. Our media server is a G700.

    I got all but one of them working, by placing the MCIPADD ip address in
    the data vlan. However one of the phones where sent to another site.
    That one refuses to work. It doesn't show any options to change the ip
    address, when booting it only shows three screens.


    the .bin file screen

    and then the DHCP screen VLANID=32

    Our DHCP is set to VLANID 2 however I cant get the phone to read it.

What system are these installed on? is your tftp server up? If these are new phones, they will no doubt need to be updated....and if the tftp server IP isnt set, they wont know where to get the files from.

    No filesv means that the phone does not know where the tftp server is. When you say that the consultant overlooked this....did you get it figured out?

  • Anonymous Jun 13, 2008

    No. You just need to put the IP into the phone.

    Press mute "addr" #, that will bring up the settings of the phone. The first IP is the IP of the phone, you can leave that at hit the "#" button to go to the next one. I forget the order, buut here is what everything means:

    Callsrv = IP of the phone system
    Fileserv = IP of the tftp server (if an IP Office, this is usually the IP of the VM Pro server)
    Port and vlan, just hit "#" as the default values are fine.

    it should give you the option to save new values and reboot. If you dont have an ftp program, you can have manager open and view the tftp server window to see the file transfers.

    Again, this is assuming you have an IP Office, things may be different on a Definity product.

  • Anonymous Jun 13, 2008

    Try rebooting the phone when it reboots, there should be an option to press "*" to program.

    Which Avaya system is this? IP Office or Definity or the gateway series?

  • Anonymous Jun 13, 2008

    No, this is a Definity product. G700 is a gateway device. i am an IP office guy.... I would call your system admin, or call a Vendor to come out....ther could be bigger problems than I could dream up....sorry

How can I get a second hand Mitel 5215 to accept an IP address?

Your phone needs an IP address in order to communicate. Normally, it asks a "host" for that IP. You need to be connected to the internet for it to connect to the normal host, and your router should be willing to give it that IP address. "DHCP" is how devices ask for and get an IP address.

Pxe e61 media test failure

Put 'Hard Drive C:' before 'Network' in the boot order
(If the hard drive does not appear in the boot order, that's why the PXE network boot agents start)

Note : Check that the hard drive is seen in the BIOS setup
PXE (pronounce Pixie) is an agent used to boot on to the network
It's using the DHCP protocol to localise a server where the image of the OS is located
In order to PXE boot press F12 at startup or configure the boot order in BIOS to display 'Network' before 'Hard Drive C:'
If, for any reason, the hard drive is not seen the computer will attempt to boot on the network controller.
That is caused by the hard drive is missing, unplugged or failed

Disable dhcp

You may need to go to BIOS setting and disable PXE Boot option. It should be under Integrated Devices, or the Network Device section of BIOS.

No DHCP or proxt DHCP offered

If your computer is working fine then, disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option. It can't find a DHCP server, and is usually used to load an OS image.

For the most part not a real problem. More of a warning. Some corporate models use PXE to mass image.

Dhcp server missing option 125 and 128, 5330 ip

My guess is that your DHCP server isn't set up properly, or someone has connected another Router to your network.

Cannot update firmware Snom 300

It's not really asking for a TFTP update, it's just something that is always checked for in the boot sequence.

As for manually setting the networking configuration rather than using DHCP, see page 14 of the manual at

for instructions on how to bypass DHCP and manually configure your settings.

GrandStream GXP-2000 not booting

If both phones are showing the same symptoms then it probably means that your DHCP server is down or not configured properly. If the phones are on a separate VLAN and you have recently upgraded or replaced your network switch then it could be misconfigured as well - specifically it may require you to configure a DHCP helper address.

PXE booting errors

I don't have any experience with this product but I am 99.9% sure your problem is with Option 67. This path is from the root as defined for the TFTP server, i.e. root for the TFTP service is not the same as root for the server proper.

Most likely it should be something like:

Failed to get boot parameters via DHCP

You didn't provide any information about your network which is ALWAYS required to provide any type of help, not to mention a solution.

"Failed to get boot parameters via DHCP, xxx seconds until reboot" simply means that the computer isn't getting an IP address from your router. Setting up your router is another entirely separate topic.

This is pretty simple though, one of three things is happening:

1. Your router is not properly configured to provide DHCP to the phone.
2. Your network cable is bad.
3. Your phone is bad (most likely the RJ45 port since the phone seems to work otherwise).

You can check for bad ports or cables by checking the port status within the router. If the port is lit up, most likely the cable and phone port are fine. This is not 100% though, replacing the cable should always be a consideration even with a lit port.

Hangs up on boot

It is trying to boot from a network. You need to get it to boot from the optical drive (CD/DVD drive), there's no other way of installing the os, unless you can get another identical machine to load it with. If it doesn't recognize the optical in the boot menu, then you may have been more than a hard drive crash.
