For what it's worth, UniFi provisioning doesn't happen via single config
file. You will need to generate a config file with the Mac address as part
of the file name. Search Google or UBNT.com for the article.

I have some in my house. I use my edgerouter to provide the tftp source as
my cloudkey, and my cloudkey has asterisk running on it.

I could probably setup a system to generate a config on the fly by scraping
info from the DHCP request and then generating a config file with the
proper filename and inputting info from sip.conf for the user info if need
be, I just haven't needed to.
