This.  I don't see how it would be possible to tell the phones to
reboot unless you sent it from the server they are *currently*
registered to.  And if you can do that...you don't need to do that...

Make a small script that uses the touch command to update the
Polycom's config file mod time/date.  Then issue the standard CLI
command for them to check config.  No need to actually modify the
file, it just looks at date/time.
