Hello


This is probably the most basic question on earth but I am still getting my head around the CME config and how things work, I am from a R&S/Wireless background.


Ok so I have three dual line directory numbers.


ephone-dn 1 dual-line

number 222 no reg primary

name Office 1


ephone-dn 2 dual-line

number 222 no reg primary

name Office 2


ephone-dn 3 dual-line

number 333 no reg primary

name Office 3


Each of these is assigned to button one of an Ephone:


ephone 1

mac-address xxxx.xxxx.xxxx

type 6941

button 1:1


ephone 2

mac-address xxxx.xxxx.xxxx

type 6941

button 1:2


ephone 3

mac-address xxxx.xxxx.xxxx

type 6941

button 1:3


Effectively I want to be able to dial 111 (i.e DN 1) and it also ring Ephones 2 and 3.


I still need Ephones 2 and 3 to have thier primary numbers as setup, I just need them to also ring if someone dials 111.


Someone put me out of my misery and tell me how basic this is to do?!?


Thanks

Hi,

you can have one shared ephone-dn on multiple ephones.

For instance:


ephone-dn 1 dual

name Shared

number 777


ephone-dn 2 dual

name Primary1

number 111


ephone-dn 3 dual

name Primary2

number 222


ephone 1

mac dead:beef:0001

button 1:2 2:1


ephone 2

mac dead:beef:0002

button 1:3 2:1


Alternatively, you can use overlays.

button 1o2,1

if you don't want to use a second button for the shared line.


Take a look at

page 915, section "Shared Line Overlays"

Hi


I had a feeling it was very simple.


I just added Directory number 1 (which should be 111 in the original post) as a second button on each of the other two phones. When someone dialed 111, it rang the phone which has the DN on Button 1 and also the other two which had the same DN on button 2.


I was trying to overcomplicate it and it ended up being too simple!!


Thanks for your help
