Avaya IP Office “Default to IP Office Standard Mode”

Avaya has recently changed their IP Office IP500 cabinets to initially boot into the Partner/Quick/Basic Mode. This has caused some confusion in recent months as most are used to installing in the IP Office “Standard Mode”.

To avoid booting in the Partner/Quick/Basic Mode on a new system, make sure to follow these steps in IP Office Manager:

IPO standard mode

  1. Select “File”
  2. Select “Preferences”
  3. Under the “Preferences” tab, make sure “Default to Standard Mode” is checked.

This way when you log in to a new system, it will default to the IP Office “Standard Mode”.

If you already booted in the Partner/Quick/Basic Mode and want to change back to to the IP Office Standard, please follow these steps:

  1. Select “File”
  2. Select “Preferences”
  3. Select “Advanced”
  4. Select “Change Mode”
  5. Select the system you would like to change the mode and type in the user name and password.
