When Cisco IP phones in a CUCM Cluster have ITL or other security settings which are out of date, invalid, or mis-matched, this can cause a number of functional and operational issues such as:
- Phones are unable to de-register from one CUCM Cluster to another
- Phones are unable to download updated TFTP configuration file
- Phones are unable authenticate via HTTPS based Authentication URL
To recover from this situation, the ITL file on the phone can be deleted or erased via the phone’s administrative menu options. This process can be different depending on type of Cisco IP phone model and the firmware version it is running.
