Does the huntstop command work under dial-peer?

I have a router configured with a dedicated long distance PRI (s0/1/0) and a local PRI (0/0/0).  The LD PRI will only handle long distance calls, no local and no toll free.  When the local PRI is not available (down or all channels busy), calls to toll free numbers are hunting to the long distance dial-peer and attempting to complete via the LD PRI.  The "huntstop" command does not seem to be working  as I understand it. 

If I dialed 918005551212 it matches dial-peer 8 and goes out via port 0/0/0.  If that PRI is down, it matches dial-peer 5 and goes out via port 0/1/0.

What am I missing?

Does the huntstop command work under dial-peer?

I did some more troubleshooting working with TAC and came to the following conclusion.  When the PRI is down the dial-peer that references it is also down.  So in my example above, a call coming to the router does not get matched dial-peer 8, so all commands in that dial-peer (including huntstop) get ignored.  The next best matching dial-peer is used instead .

The behavior is different if all channels on the PRI are busy.  In that case, the dial-peer is up and the huntstop command is in effect.

Thanks all for the suggestions,

Yosse

It should work, I have never tried it, but according to documentation it should work as expected.  What IOS version are you using, perhaps a bug?

Does the huntstop command work under dial-peer?

I'm using IOS v15.0(1)M6.  I have tested it on a couple of routers and it does not seem to work.  The call is attempted on the LD PRI, with the telco rejecting it after a number of seconds.  This is creating an issue because the call never makes it back to UCM to try the next gateway on the route list.

That's an old and .0 release, I would recommend going to either 15.1.4M (latest), 15.2.4M (latest) or 15.3.

Hi Yosse,

I happened to check the same and it worked.

Doesnt seem to causing a problem. The "huntstop" command disables the hunting porcess.

huntstop

Indicates whether dial-peer hunting is turned on, by using the huntstop command, for this dial peer.

I believe you must have not set the dial-peer hunt,below is the example that is how huntstop works:

Telco(config)#dial-peer  hunt ?

  <0-7>  Dial-peer hunting choices, listed in hunting order within each choice:

  0 - Longest match in phone number, explicit preference, random selection.

  1 - Longest match in phone number, explicit preference, least recent use.

  2 - Explicit preference, longest match in phone number, random selection.

  3 - Explicit preference, longest match in phone number, least recent use.

  4 - Least recent use, longest match in phone number, explicit preference.

  5 - Least recent use, explicit preference, longest match in phone number.

  6 - Random selection.

  7 - Least recent use.

Telco(config)#dial-peer  hunt

Kindly rate the post accordinly.

Perhaps using trunk group rather than specific port would provide more desired outcome.
