Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

I currently have a hunt group that has been configured through the cisco CLI. I want to add some extensions, but am not having much luck. Is there anyone that can help me out with the commands?

Here is the current configuration

voice hunt-group 2 parallel
final 299
list 250,251,252
timeout 28
pilot 512

My goal is to add two extensions to that list. I read that you cannot add one extension at a time, so do I need to remove all extensions and then add a new list?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Jason

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

Why use that to manage the UC500??
Use telnet or ssh to access the CLI for configuration (look the picture).

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

Hello,

Just type again the list command along with the order of the extensions you want. For example if you have to add the new extensions at the end:

voice hunt-group 2 parallel

  list 250,251,252,xxx,yyy

If you need to add the extensions at different order:

voice hunt-group 2 parallel

  list 250,xxx,251,yyy,252

and so on...

Hope it helps, please rate the post if it does.

Kind regards,

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

Being that it is parallel, it shouldn't matter what order the extensions are entered right?

These are the steps I have tried and have failed:

1. Navigate to the designated IP (in my case 192.168.1.5)

2. Click "monitor the router"

3. Click "configure"

4. Type "voice hunt-group 2 parallel" in the command line OR navigate by click the voice, hunt-group links, entering "2", and clicking parallel.

5. From there, I either type "list [extensions here]" or click the list link and enter the extensions in the box.

Either way, when I go back and look in the "show tech-support" link, no changes show up.

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

Yes, you're right. Parallel will be a broadcast, then calls simultaneously ring multiple phones.

Re-typing the command through CLI is easier and results should reflect immediately.

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

As far as I know, I am typing the commands in correctly, but it doesn't seem to be working. What command should I be typing to add the extensions? Anyone else have any suggestions?

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

Hi Jason,

You are running into this restriction as you nicely noted. So delete this list first, then re-add

with the two new extensions added;

reates a list of extensions that are members of a voice hunt group. To remove a list from a router configuration, use the no form of this command.

directory-numbers—List of extensions to be added as members to the voice hunt group. Separate the extensions with commas.

Add or delete all extensions in a hunt-group list at one time. You cannot add or delete a single number in an existing list.

There must be from 2 to 10 extensions in the hunt-group list, and each number must be a primary or secondary number.

Any number in the list cannot be a pilot number of a parallel hunt group.

From this good doc

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucme/admin/configuration/guide/cmecover.html#wp1154483

Cheers!

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

I did read that. I mentioned it in my first post, but I didn't want to remove the extensions and then no be able to add them back. I will give this a try now.


Thanks.

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

There's got to be something that I'm missing. I went to "monitor the router", clicked "configure" typed in "voice hunt-group 2" and then typed in "no list"

Should I have included the extensions? I wouldn't think so since I'm just deleting that list. When i did enter the command, the phones did restard so I don't quite understand that, but when I looked back in the "show tech-support" link, the extensions were still listed.

I'm almost ready to call the CISCO rep/partner that we used to deal with, but we had a bit of conflict with him at some point so I'm trying to avoid him as much as possible.

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

Hey Jason,

We'll get this here

Try;

no list 250, 251, 252

Cheers!

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

no dice sir. It rebooted everything, but when i went back into "show tech-support" it has this listed

voice hunt-group 2 parallel
final 299
list 250,251,252
timeout 28
pilot 512

When I'm navigating to the hunt group, I am typing "voice hunt-group 2" Do I need to include "parallel" in there for any reason?

The only thing I have done successfully is listed a new hunt group labelled "voice hunt-group 3 parallel". I was able to successfully remove that as well.

I've got to say that managing a shoretel system is much less complicated than cisco. I don't understand why typing commands into the CLI would not update the CME as well. That doesn't make any sense to me.

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

Hi jason,

Sorry this is being such a pain!

Sometimes different IOS's work with these commands a little differently. Can you please

try adding "parallel" and if that doesn't work why don't you just delete Hunt Group 2 and

start over now that you've seen how it works.

Cheers!

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

Problem I have with deleting it is if I run into a problem recreating it, I will be pretty screwed. Our business is based off of incoming calls, so I can't afford any downtime really. When I did create hunt-group 3 yesterday, I tried adding the same parameters including pilot, timeout, final and the new extensions... After typing one of the commands, it restarted and the hunt-group was no longer listed. I'm not sure if I did it correctly or missed something, but again, I don't want to chance anything.

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

I tried adding parallel and no dice there either.

These should be entered in as seperate commands correct?

1. voice hunt-group 2 parallel

2. no list

I have attached the pictures in the order of the commands processed. Maybe you will see something I'm doing wrong here.

If you're looking at the 1st picture, I have already clicked configure

After clicking the command button or pressing enter on the 2nd picture, it reboots and this point and there is no change. It does tell me the command was completed though.

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

I'm new to cisco. The past two days are my first ever trying to look into this, so I wasn't sure how to manage it. I went in through telnet and it looks like that may have worked. I cannot test it being that I'm not in the office at this time, but it shows up correct under the "show tech-support" link.

I will confirm tomorrow if this worked.

Here is what it shows: (looks promising)

voice hunt-group 2 parallel

final 299

list 250,251,252,253,215

timeout 28

pilot 512

Re: Adding extensions to hunt group via CLI

Jason,

Continue with telnet or ssh for administration. Less confusing and better results. If you need further help let us know
