The Linksys SPA9xx series has some real quirks related to TFTP. I've had a lot more consistent behavior with HTTPS.

And in general, it will only download files when the phone thinks it's time to do so. They've intentionally added random delays. The Linksys might reboot, then have default delays of 15 minutes before it downloads the configuration. It's possible that it will download the file you told it too in the Provisioning rule . . . eventually.

The BroadSoft partner config guides can be a nice start, but (a) there are sometimes errors, and (b) vendors, like Cisco/Linksys, can change things faster than BroadSoft can update their documentation.
