Share gateway with Two Call Managers

I need some ideas or information on if this is possible.

I have a production callmanager cluster that has 3 types of gateways - couple t1's on a catalyst 6513, an h323 gateway with t1's on a cisco 3600 and also a vg200 in mgcp that has 4 fxo ports.

I am currently setting up a lab and would like to share one of the gateways so that I can test outbound calling. The vg200 has 3 free fxo ports. Can it be accessed by 2 callmanagers ? It is currently configured with mgcp and is registered with the production callmanager which is only using one port.

Any ideas on using any of these gateways would be appreciated. Also sample config or pointers are always helpful.

Thanks Peter

It would not be possible with MGCP. However, I would use your H.323 gateway. Just point your CM cluster (production and lab) at the router and let the dial peers do the work!!!

Another option would be an intercluster trunk. That will allow you to route the calls through your production CCM.
