CME: CUE shared voicemail box help

Answered Question
Dec 15th, 2009
User Badges:

It's been requested to add an executive's line to his admins phone. However the executive wants to make sure his admin see's his phantom line ringing if he's on a call

in progress on his mainline.


So I created a second line and Call forward Busy & Call Forward No Answer to the second line. I added the second line appearance to the admin phone. Then I have the second line Call forward busy and Call Forward No Answer to voicemail

.


Everything works great in testing except when the second line goes to voicemail. I thought the call would go to the mailbox of the executive since the call was generated originally on his mainline then rolled over to the second. Instead I get a prompt there is no mailbox on the line since the second line doesn't have voicemail. It's just a dummy line.


How can I make that call end up back in his voicemail? Is it possible?


Thank you

Avtually I would do as Rob suggested - put it in CUE


In config mode input:


voicemail mailbox-selection original-called

Hi Ross,


This is most possible


You can check this config for your CUE setup. This is likely what is causing this issue;


**Mailbox selection (OCN or LRD)


This configurable option specifies the mailbox to be used in case of call forward.


Mailbox selection: Mailbox in which an incoming voice message is stored. The options are original called number (OCN) or the last redirected number (LRD). LRD is the default option:) So, just change your setup to use OCN.



Check out Page 88 of this good doc;

Hope this helps!

Hi Rob,


I'm in the CUE config on this facility's router and I don't see anywhere a reference for **Mailbox selection (OCN or LRD)


Thank you

Hi,


It goes on the dial-peer in CME since that is the device that actually builds the incoming call


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucme/command/reference/cme_m1ht.html#wp1028890


mailbox-selection (dial-peer)

To set a policy for selecting a mailbox for calls from a Cisco Unified CME system that are diverted before being sent to a Cisco Unity Express or PBX voice-mail pilot number, use the mailbox-selection command in dial-peer configuration mode. To return to the default, use the no form of this command.

mailbox-selection {last-redirect-num | orig-called-num}

no mailbox-selection

Syntax Description

last-redirect-num

(PBX voice mail only) The mailbox to which the call will be sent is the number that diverted the call to the voice-mail pilot number (the last number to divert the call).

orig-called-num

(Cisco Unity Express only) The mailbox to which the call will be sent is the number that was originally dialed before the call was diverted.


HTH,

Per the link that Rob sent earlier it can alos be configured on CUE:


UC500-CUE(config)# voicemail mailbox?
mailbox mailbox-selection
UC500-CUE(config)# voicemail mailbox-selection ?
  last-redirect Last Redirect Number
  original-called Original Called Number
UC500-CUE(config)# voicemail mailbox-selection

I guess I should've mentioned we're using extension mobility one the CME.


This is what our subscriber profiles appear as


ephone-dn  3  dual-line
number 463803
label John Doe - 463803
description (555) 555-5555
name John Doe
call-forward busy 463939
call-forward noan 463939 timeout 10
hold-alert 30 originator


Do I just add the last number redirect into this?

The


Defaults > Voice Mail GUI option also configures mailbox selection (see the second to the last setting on the page)
