we have a Trixbox environment and are planning to upgrade to Lync in the next 6 months.

we purchased Lync ready phones, but i'm having a hard time setting them up for Trixbox

it appears these phones do not have a webui, so i cannot re-configure it from there.

1 phone is remote, 1 is local

any suggestions on how i can configure these devices

thanks

The Aastra 6721 phones have an embedded Lync 2010 client. They are not meant for Asterisk. I dont think there's any firmware you can download at this time either to do a conversion.

Correct, those devices run Lync Phone Edition and only work with Lync 2010 or 2013; they cannot be used with any other SIP telephony platform.

You'd be better off going with Polycom VVX phones as they can register to both standard SIP platforms or Lync Server.
