Hi Sebastine,


The relationship for the DN (Directory Number) is built when you configure the User Profile. Take a look at Step 5. When the specified user logs into a phone using their Profile the IP Phone will populate the assigned number/numbers;


Configuring a User Profile


To configure a user profile for a phone user who logs into a Cisco Unified IP phone that is enabled for Extension Mobility, perform the following steps.


SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable


2. configure terminal


3. voice user-profile profile-tag


4. user name password password


5. number number type type


6. speed-dial speed-tag number [label label] [blf]


7. pin number


8. max-idle-time minutes


9. privacy-button


10. end




Here is a closer look at Step 5


Creates line definition.


•number-Directory number to be associated with and displayed next to a button on a phone that is configured with this profile.



number number[,...number] type type


Example:

Router(config-user-profile)# number 2001 type

silent-ring

Router(config-user-profile)# number 2002 type

beep-ring

Router(config-user-profile)# number 2003 type

feature-ring

Router(config-user-profile)# number 2004 type

monitor-ring

Router(config-user-profile)# number 2005,2006

type overlay

Router(config-user-profile)# number 2007,2008

type cw-overl

Thanks for your response,so the cmd number 2001 type silent-ring means user with extension number 2001 can pick their call on logging in? Meaning i will be limited to just users on ap[articular phone since the a number per button if am using a phone with 8 buttons

Hi Sebastine,


For the first question, yes, the user with extension 2001 would have 2001 on Line Button 1 when logged in (in this example :) The example profile I sent was for a 6 button phone 796x but could also have been configured for an 8 button phone 797x. When the user logs in with their profile all lines will show on the phone.


Hope this helps!

Rob
