Replacing a Repeater
The procedure for replacing a repeater is similar to that for a handset (see above), except that you
must enter the IPEI value for the new repeater in the Repeater Properties area of the applicable web
page in the ShoreTel IP930D Configuration Tool.
After backing up the old MAC-specific configuration files and after the new ones have been placed into
the FTP root directory, reset the base on which the repeater is located using the Reset Base page of
ShoreTel IP930D Manager. This will cause the base to restart and download the updated configuration
file.
Next, enable registration for the base with the new repeater using ShoreTel IP930D Manager from the
Base Security page and plug in the new repeater at its installation location. Press and hold the reset
button on the repeater for about 3 seconds until the LED turns solid red and then release the button.
Wait for the green LED to start double-flashing. Within one minute the repeater should register with the
base and the LED should turn green steady, indicating it is operational.
Replacing a Base
The procedure for replacing a base is similar to that for a handset (see above) except that you must
enter the MAC address for the new base in the Base Properties area of the applicable web page in the
ShoreTel IP930D Configuration Tool.
After the updated MAC-specific configuration files have been placed into the FTP root directory, all
bases in the system need to be reset in order to learn about the new base. For each base, go to the
Reset Base page in ShoreTel IP930D Manager, check Reset Base, and click Reset. Continue until all
bases have been reset.
Replacing the Base designated RPN 0x00
When the base designated RPN 0x00 is replaced, all repeaters and handsets in the system need to be
re-registered with their respective bases. This base has an RFPI (Radio Fixed Part Network Identity)
that is used system-wide for authentication; if this RFPI changes without re-registering components,
authentication of all handsets and repeaters in the system will fail.
If the base you are replacing is not RPN 0x00, you can disregard this section.
You can see which base in the system has been designated RPN 0x00 by looking at the installation
summary. If your system has only one base, this base is always RPN 0x00.
To replace the base designated RPN 0x00, follow the instructions for Replacing a Base on page 40.
However, when resetting bases from the Reset Base page of ShoreTel IP930D Manager, start with the
base at RPN 0x00. Otherwise, the system will not operate properly.
Note
If you are replacing the base designated RPN 0x00, be sure to read the section below for special
procedures. You can find RPN assignments in the installation summary.
