We have CUCM 8.6 and Unity Connection 8.6 in our cluster. We have a requirement like, calls are flooding at reception. So we just need to have a voice mail recorded which says "
Thankyou for calling. Request you to kindly press the desired extension number or press 0 for operator assistance.
Mean to say when a call lands on reception extension, the call should automatically get forwarded to voice mail which say pls dial the desired extension if not know pls press 0 for operator assistance (again the call should go back to reception).
How to do the configs for this kind of auto answer and call transfer.

Am almost done, but calls from voice mail when it gives the option for diallling the number like extension or operator..then after dialling the calls are not going through..
Any suggestions pls.
Check if the extension numbers are allowed in the restriction table in CUC . Also make sure that the CSS of voice mail ports can reach the user extensions. I mean make sure the CSS has the PT of reception's extension and other extensions.

Yes the VM Ports CSS are reachable as we have give the same CSS which we use for the extensions. So no doubt its reachable.
In brief configs done in CUC is...
almost same as described in the url.
The issue was with the Restriction tables, i had to manually add and allow the DN series wrt our extension series.
Thanks it worked.
Everything is fine, but who ever calls through PRI to reach the reception number (board number) call goes to the auto attendant system. But internal office users who try to reach on the reception extension number even they are going through auto attendant sytem.
Is there any way or other solution which can solve this purpose.
