Is there a way to label the 7914 side cars? I currently have the extension only on the lines, but the client would like the users name. I know you can label the ephone-dn, but isn't that going to change the display on the end users phone as well. Would I need to label every ephone-dn with their name and leave it at that or can I have the extension on the user phone and the name on the sidecar?
Have you tried applying Labels (Text Name) as suggested below? This will not impact the End-user Display.
The label support feature controls the display adjacent to an ephone-dn line button. By default, an IP phone displays the extension number that is set using the number command under an ephone-dn. The label support feature allows you to enter a meaningful text string for each ephone-dn so that a phone user with multiple lines can select a line by name instead of by phone number, thus eliminating the need to consult in-house phone directories.
1. ephone-dn dn-tag
2. label label-string
4. ephone phone-tag
Example: Router(config-ephone-dn)# label user1
Creates a custom label that is displayed on the phone next to the line button that is associated with this ephone-dn. The custom label replaces the default label, which is the number that was assigned to this ephone-dn.
label-string String of up to 30 alphanumeric characters that provides the label text.
I haven't tried it yet, but I guess my problem is that the lines I have on the sidecars are monitor lines using the same dn # as the end user... If I apply the text to the ephone-dn, what stops it from changing the end users line?
My BAD! I was referring to to Outgoing CLID Display from these phones :( I am pretty sure that you are correct that the Label will apply to all appearances of the ephone-dn. I believe this is "all or nothing".
