Need to automatically provision your Polycom phones against Endpoint Manager in FreePBX, or another config source with a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter?  Look no further.

Simply add this to your DHCP configuration and substitute YOUR_DHCP_NAME_HERE, your subnet (192.168.100.0/24) and the IP address (192.168.100.5) with your provisioning server below.  To change to ftp or http, simply change the URL prefix.

set service dhcp-server global-parameters "option option-160 code 160 = string;"
set service dhcp-server shared-network-name YOUR_DHCP_NAME_HERE subnet 192.168.100.0/24 subnet-parameters "option option-160 "tftp://192.168.100.5";"

Give me a high-five in the comments for saving you a few hours of head-banging! 🙂
