The POE idea explains a lot. I was wondering how one forces a reboot on the phones in order to direct uptake of new settings. 

Since I only have a handfull of extensions I use the phones built-in web management interface to reboot each phone.  If it were more of an issue I'm reasonably certain that a script could be 
constructed to trigger a reboot on all the phone en masse.

The web management interface on the Polycom phones in nowhere near as good as the one in the Aastra phones. Aastra also supports encrypted config files using freely downloadable 
software tools.
