Re: MWI light on second line in CME

Hi Chris,

Perhaps this is what you are looking for;

Before Cisco Unified CME 4.0, the message waiting indicator (MWI) lamp on a phone could be associated only with the primary line of an ephone. In Cisco Unified CME 4.0 and later versions, you can designate a phone line other than the primary line to be associated with the MWI lamp.

Step 1

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

Enter your password if prompted.

Step 2

configure terminal

Example:

Router# configure terminal

Enters global configuration mode.

Step 3

ephone phone-tag

Example:

Router(config)# ephone 36

Enters ephone configuration mode.

phone-tag Unique sequence number that identifies this ephone during configuration tasks.

Step 4

mwi-line line-number

Example:

Router(config-ephone)# mwi-line 3

Selects a phone line to receive MWI treatment; when a message is waiting for the selected line, the message waiting indicator is activated.

line-number Ephone line number. Range is 1 to 34. Default is 1.

Step 5

end

Example:

Router(config-ephone)# end

Returns to privileged EXEC mode
