ShoreTel Voicemail Greeting Export

The other day I was searching for a way to export greetings from voicemail and auto-attendants from a ShoreTel connect environment, and I came across this great article from "Workend Tech Blog"

Importing a WAVE File into a ShoreTel Voicemail Greeting, whilst its an old post from December 2014, it looks to still work to get an export of the WAV files.

To make things short, under "\Shoreline Data\Vms\SHORETEL\" you will find all the WAV files for the configured greetings.

AudioCodes vSBC Initial Configuration

Another quick post so that I remember how to complete the AudioCodes vSBC initial configuration..

After the import of the OVF file the system will boot with a default IP address of 192.168.0.1.

To run the Configuration Wizard complete the following:
Login using the default username and password:
Admin/Admin

Enter the privileged command level:
enable

Password is default: Admin

configure-wizard

select "Yes" to complete



Select "No" for the "Do you want to configure Web-CLI User parameters?

Select "Yes" to "Do you want to configure OAMP Network Settings?"

Enter VLAN ID:

Enter IP Address:

Enter prefix length:

Enter default gateway:

Enter primary DNS server:

Enter secondary DNS server:

Select "No" to "Do you want to configure SNMP Network Management?"



Confirm the settings just configured, via selecting "Yes"


The system will then restart.

After the reboot has completed, the system should have the IP address configured.
