Setting ShoreTel Option 156


To set up DHCP option 156 for ShoreTel telephones:
Step 1 Open DHCP Manager on your Microsoft DHCP server.

Step 2 Right-click the DHCP server, and select Set pre-defined options.

NOTE If your organization is separated into separate subnets, make sure to select the
proper subnet. For example, if you have a global organization and would like to
configure the DHCP server to deliver the Spanish tones and cadences only to the
IP phones in your office in Spain, you should make sure to select that particular
subnet of users. If you do not specify the subnet, then all phones that boot from
this DHCP server will receive Spanish tones and cadences.

Step 3 Click Add.

Step 4 Set Name to IP Phone Boot Server.

Step 5 Set Data Type to String.

Step 6 Set Code to 156 and add a description, if desired.

Step 7 Navigate to the scope options and add option 156.

Step 8 Set the value of option 156 to:

ftpservers=ip_address, country=n, language=n, layer2tagging=n, vlanid=n

where ip_address equals the IP address of your ShoreWare
Headquarters server.
