[asterisk-users] SNOM870 provisioning BLF settings

We use Snom870s together with Asterisk 13.14.0 and FreePBX  I am having an ongoing problem with setting the BLF
values on these phones from the configuration file generated from

In FreePBX we employ the Commercial Endpoint Manager (CEM) to
configure these phones.  The resulting configuration file contains
lines like these:

<fkey idx="0" context="0" label="Reception" perm="">blf sip:10@;</fkey>
<fkey idx="1" context="0" label="AKL" perm="">blf sip:11@;</fkey>
<fkey idx="2" context="0" label="JBB" perm="">blf sip:12@;</fkey>

However, on the test phone I am using (FW 8.7.5-35) I see this as a

Context 	Type 	Number 	Short Text
Active 		Line 			 		P1
Active 		Line 			 		P2
. . .
Active 		Line 			 		P15

When instead I have expect to see:

Context 	Type 	Number				Short Text
Active 		BLF 	<sip:10 at addr;user=phone>|**	Recep	P1
Active 		BLF 	<sip:11 at addr;user=phone>|**	AKL	P2
. . .
Active 		BLF 	<sip:24 at addr;user=phone>|**	Jill	P15

I have rebooted this phone several times and the provisioning web
server records the transfer of the settings file with a 200 result.

"GET /snom870.htm HTTP/1.1" 200 224 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;
snom870-SIP SPEAr300 SNOM 1.4 000413419A8A)"

But the settings file appears to have no effect on the BLF
configuration.  I am at a loss at this point.

Any suggestions?
