Hi I'm new to the IP telephony world we have a current Call Manager 126.96.36.1990. I have an employee that does not have an office. Can I create a DN and have the rest of the office staff call that number to leave messages and have the employee check the number from various phones without associating. Do I need to associate it to a phone even though she has no dedicated phone?
No worries! Please try to use this method to completely remove this DN before trying again.
**Remove this DN from all phones first;
Can you please try this method via the Route Plan Report;
Deleting Unassigned Directory Numbers
This section describes how to delete an unassigned directory number from the route plan report. Directory numbers get configured and removed in the Directory Number Configuration window of Cisco CallManager Administration. When a directory number gets removed from a device or a phone gets deleted, the directory number still exists in the Cisco CallManager database. To delete the directory number from the database, use the Route Plan Report window.
Step 1 Choose Route Plan > Route Plan Report.
The Route Plan Report window displays. Use the three drop-down list boxes to specify a route plan report that lists all unassigned DNs.
Step 2 Three ways exist to delete directory numbers:
a. Click the directory number that you want to delete. When the Directory Number Configuration window displays, click Delete.
b. Check the check box next to the directory number that you want to delete. Click Delete Selected.
c. To delete all found unassigned directory numbers, click Delete all Found Items.
A warning message verifies that you want to delete the directory number.
Step 3 To delete the directory number, click OK. To cancel the delete request, click Cancel.
From this good doc;
Hope this helps!
Hope all is well :) (Great job here by the way!)
Yes, the DN assigned to the CTI-RP will match in Unity or Unity Connection. She will just call the Unity/UC pilot # (Opening Greeting) Press * and should be good to go. Also, as Jaime nicely noted you could configure an Alternate Extension for her Mobile or Home number that would be recognised by Unity and route her right through to her own mailbox. In the newest Unity version 7.0, if she was calling from the same Office phone over and over again this could become a "learned" extension (sorry, can't remember the actual feature name right now :)and offer the same behaviour.
Hope this helps buddy!
