CME Ringtone configuration

When we did our initial CME configuration we copied over the ‘ringtones.tar’ file and extracted it to the folder ‘CME_Ringtones’.  Now it’s time to configure the CME instance to use them.

There are two configuration files used by CME to tell the phones what ringtones are available and what they are.  These are…

RingList.xml – defines the available default ringers for a phone.
DistinctiveRingList.xml – defines the extension or line ringtones available to the phone.

The layout of each file looks like this…


This is a copy of the RingList.xml that comes in the ringtones.tar file.  It’s fairly straight forward so I won’t explain the syntax.

To get the phones to see the XML files as well as the ringtones associated with each ‘ring’ we need to host both the XML file as well as the .raw files on the CME’s TFTP server instance.  All said and done, the config lines I inserted to make this work looked like this…

tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/RingList.xml alias RINGLIST.XML
tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/DistinctiveRingList.xml alias DISTINCTIVERINGLIST.XML

tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/Ring3.raw alias Ring3.raw
tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/Ring4.raw alias Ring4.raw
tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/Ring5.raw alias Ring5.raw
tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/Ring6.raw alias Ring6.raw
tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/Ring7.raw alias Ring7.raw
tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/Sax1.raw alias Sax1.raw
tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/Sax2.raw alias Sax2.raw
tftp-server flash:/CME_RingTones/Vibe.raw alias Vibe.raw

Note that I have to use the ‘alias’ command on each file instance since the files are not in the root directory of the flash.

After I loaded these lines into configuration the phones detected the new ringtones after a reboot.
