Assigning and controlling DID relative to DN assignments is the process at the root of my question. Forgive my ignorance if most of you have this problem tackled in a simple manner. The way I handle it now involves 2 processes. I'd like to make it one of course. Up to this point I have always thought of unassigned DN's as a bad thing for what specific reason I'm not sure maybe they use system resources? I have done some research but I'm quite busy and have lots of other priorities looking for a quick answer. In a nutshell I was thinking is creating unassigned DN's for each unassigned DID. Again I'm not finding an easy way to do this. Goal is when an Administrator goes to create a new phone he can choose from the unassigned dn's. There would then be no need of maintaining the unsed DID list outside of the UCM database. If this is a dumb question then throw me to the lions! Have at it!
