I have a CME 3.4 system with a PRI connection to PSTN. We have 20 DID numbers assigned to the PRI, and inbound DID is working perfectly. However, when I dial out from an extension, the caller-id information on the receiving end shows the extension number rather than the DID number assigned to that extension. (i.e. when I call my cellphone from extension 200, what I get in the caller ID on the cellphone is '200') Is there any way for the DID number to be passed to the receiving station instead?
Are you using 4-digit extensions? If so, try something like the following:
voice translation-rule 1
rule 1 /\(....$\)/ /509444\1/
voice translation-profile ANI-TRANSFORM
translate calling 1
translation-profile outgoing ANI-TRANSFORM
The translation rule prepends the area code and exchange, you'll need to modify it to fit your numbers. There are some good docs on translations, look up the above commands and play with the configuration a bit.
We're actually using 3-digit extensions, and unfortunately since we are trying to match an old extension plan, the extension numbers and DID numbers don't match each other at all or even share digits except purely by accident.
Your post clued me in, though, because I completely overlooked 'translate-calling' and 'translation-profile outgoing' in my config.
We're passing the correct DID numbers outbound now, thanks!

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
