Creating a standalone Voicemail box.

I need to create two standalone voicemail boxes.  They do not need to ring a phone, just straight to voicemail.  I am new to cisco and my search has revealed zero results. 

We are using Unity and CUCM, the newest versions of each.

Creating a standalone Voicemail box.

Hi Wick,

A nice way to create a "Dummy" or "Virtual" number in CUCM is

create it as a CTI-RP (CTI-Route Point.) When you create a

CTI-RP you will be able to set a CFWD on the DN page to go staight to


Just a thought.

Re: Creating a standalone Voicemail box.

Hey Rob,

Thanks for the answer and I will play around with this, but just a bit of background.  I am not a network administrator.  I work in a different part of IT yet all of this has fallen onto me.  There's a lot more to say but I think you get where I am headed.

All of this Cisco administation is new to me, and I have been teaching myself as I go. We just recently switched over to VOIP, using SIP.

Could you go into more detail on how to create this type of number, or if possible direct me to a correct article?

Again thanks for the response!
