Background Image on Cisco 7971G

I have a Cisco 7971G phone here running on Call Manager 7.1.5 system.  I would like to use our company logo as the background image and would like if someone could tell me how I can accomplish this task.

This article gives a good description of the process - one part that's easy to miss however is that once you have uploaded the relevant images and edited the List.xml file, you will need to restart the TFTP service on the server

I guess I was looking for something a bit more descriptive.  I just use IE to access all my Call Manager stuff, I don't see a place where I can view the files on the TFTP server, or a place to upload images or anything.  I know I need to get at this List.xml file, but have no idea how to do it using the IE Interface to the Call manager.  If you could provide any extra insight that woudl be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

OK, i'm guessing I need to download some kind of TFTP client?

Not necessarily - are you running Windows XP or a differentOS? (In XP there is a built in TFTP client)

Actually sorry - for the 7971 the directory is different - try the following - hopefully that will work

tftp x.x.x.x get Desktops/320x212x12/list.xml
(where x.x.x.x is the IP address of your CallManager server)

Same error.  My phone is a CP-7971G-GE

Ok, I don't have one of those phones to compare. Within Cisco Unified OS Administration -> Software Upgrades -> TFTP file management, search for List.xml - that should tell you where the file is located.

What version of Call Manager are you running?

mfehrmannAuthor Commented:
That is the first thing I tried to do before posting back on here asking how to get to it.  When I did a search for list.xml it doesn't show there is one.  I am running Call Manager System version: 7.1.5.10000-12

morganmceCommented:
It's a bit annoying, but the search is case sensitive - did you try List.xml as well?  (Or even just search for File name contains "ist.xml" - on mine it's List.xml anyway.

Version is pretty much the same as what I'm running - I implemented this back when it was v6 though.

FINALLY, I got it.  I found the List.xml in that 640x480x24 folder, but when I uploaded the images and List.xml there it didn't work.  So I went back to your original pdf you made for me, and uploaded the List.xml, and 2 images to the 320x212x12 folder and bang, they all starting working.  I actually have a huge list of options now.  I'm guessing the List.xml file just needed to be uploaded into that 320x212x12 folder in the first place.  

Thanks for Everything.  Now off to posting my next question as to how to customize the softkey layout of these phones :)
