To configure AA you will need to create Call Handlers on CUC. Basically you will have a CTI RP on CCM that matches a DID number to send calls to a CUC Call Handler, play greetings and allow caller inputs.

Basic steps are:

1. On CUCM create a CTI RP with extension XXXX and Call Forward All to VM.

2. On CUC go to Call Management--> System Call Handlers--> create a Call Handler with extension XXXX (use the one above)

3. Edit--> Greetings --> Standard--> Play/Record -->There you can record a greeting instructing the caller to press 1 for X, 2 for Y, etc

4. Edit--> Caller Input--> Configure each key (1,2,etc) to forward the call to another CH to listen to a greeting or to send the caller

to a subscriber depending on your needs.

For more info please refer to:

*** System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 2.x ***

What do you mean by the AA doesn't work?

Does the call reach Unity? Are you able to hear the greeting for the omp CH?
