Got and old As5350 that has a T1 on Slot3. We have external devices with 56k modems dial-into it. I need to "busy out" the T1 while we do some work on the network.

I see that the command is

Router# busyout 3

However, I don't see how I "unbusy" the T1 so that calls can be made again to the T1 in Slot3.

To gracefully disable a modem from dialing or answering calls, use the modem busyout command in line configuration mode.

The disabling action is not executed until the active modem returns to an idle state. No active connections are interrupted when you enter this command. If the modem busyout-threshold command is set, this command will be delayed until the DS0 lines to the exchange are taken out of service. For T3 cards the message "No Controller configured" might appear for unconfigured T1 links in the T3.
