The Polycom Admin Guide provides details on the Factory Default Options

 

Sep 19, 2022 Question: Why does a Phone return/revert to a previous unknown password even after a factory reset?

Resolution: If a phone is provisioned either by a local server/ZTP/LENS and/or a DHCP option the phone will simply load the old configuration. Please check with your IT team or whoever set up the phone.

 

Depending on the SIP / UC Software Version of the Phone there are multiple options that can be considered.

 

If you need to remove the resource files from a phone at some later date, for example, you are giving the phone to a new user, instructions on how to put the phone into the factory default state can be found in “Quick Tip 18298: Resetting and Rebooting Polycom Phones“ => here <=.

 

Option 1 via the Phone GUI:

NOTE: The above is only possible using UC Software 4.0.0 or later!
