Since V13 the UpdateURL will be used for the oldstyle Update or the new provisioning process.
You have to decide for which scenario you want to use the UpdateURL configuration.
V13 provisioning and configuration/firmware with the Devices app
There is a default value in the Firmware which will be used to reach config.innovaphone.com for Provisioning. If you dont want to use the vendor provisioning servers, you can change the URL to use your own offline Provisioning.
Operations like device configurations and firmwareupgrades should be done in the Devices App.
If the Phone boots up the first time and a UpdateURL via local DHCP will be delivered, this process doesn't work. If the Phone connects the first time to the vendor Provisioning System the UpdateURL will be changed with a "/no-dhcp" flag. A UpdateURL which is delivered via DHCP will be ignored.
UpdateURL and your own Scripts or Update Server
The device can be configured to poll an update server (a normal web server). A file pointed to by an URL is read from the update server and executed. This is an efficient mechanism to keep a large number of devices up to date. See Reference13r1:Concept_Update_Server for a detailed description of the available commands.
|URL||An URL, for example http://192.168.0.1/update/script-ip800.txt, pointing to a file whose commands are executed.
If the URL ends with a slash '/', for example http://192.168.0.1/update/, the device is adding the file name update-ipxxx.htm automatically, deduced from the device short name (for example update-ip800.htm). Furthermore some placeholders may be used in the URL-String as described in the update servers scfg command description.
These placeholders may be used e.g. to address a device-specific directory (http://192.168.1.2/update/#h/script.txt) or to generate HTTP-GET parameters (http://192.168.0.1/update/script.php?mac=#m).
Some standard parameters are always appended to the query part of the URL:
If access to the command file requires authentication it must be configured within the HTTP-Client of the device. See Services/HTTP/Client.
|Interval||An interval (in minutes) at which the file is re-read and executed. To restrict the update to certain hours (e.g. only during the night), there are mechanisms within the available commands to restrict the execution of the commands. The polling of the command file cannot be restrcited.|
Current Update Serials
The Current Update Serials section shows the values of the variables set after last successful execution of the associated command. These values are provided as standard parameters in the query part of the URL.
The Update Serials can be cleared using:
mod cmd UP1 reinit
This can be useful if a device should be handled as virgin, without performing a factory reset (please note that
mod cmd UP1 cmds except for poll only work from within update scripts, not from the command line),
