Cisco Call Manager Express Shared Line Appearance

Greetings,

I would like to take an extension on CME, extension 100 for example, and attach it to multiple buttons on a single phone.

Is there a way to do this, so buttons 1, 2 and 3 all have extension 100 on it?

Thanks,

I guess you could just use something like this to assign the same DN to buttons..

 ephone xx
  mac-address abcd.efgh.jikl
  button 1:1 2:1 3:1

Not possible:

duplicate dn [6] assignment: button 2, 6, 6
   only button 1:6 accepted

Maybe the logical question is "why" do you want to do this?
Maybe there is another way to get to the goal?

1 extension on multiple buttons is pretty common.  It allows more inbound calls to a single extension, and outbound calls as well.

aha OK, if you want to make more than one call you can do it using one button
if you have CUCME version 7.x you can make up to 8 calls through one button if not you can make up to 2 calls just define the ephone-dn 1 oct or dual

Ephone-dn 101 (single line)
number 201
Ephone-dn 102 (single line)
number 202
Ephone-dn 103 (single line)
number 203
Ephone-dn 104 (single line)
number 204

ephone 1
  mac-address aaaa.bbbb.cccc
  button 1o,101,102,103,104
or
ephone 1
  mac-address aaaa.bbbb.cccc
  button 1c,101,102,103,104

The "o" is used for overlay lines in situations where you only have one line and would like to add multiple ephone-dn's to it.  No call waiting  

The "c" is used for call waiting.

If you create the ephone-dn's with dual-lines and apply the  overlay scenario you might not get predictable results.

my configuration is to have one button with the same extension like:
ephone-dn 1 oct
number 100
ephone 1
mac xxxx.xxxx.xxxx
button 1:1

Try this:

ephone-dn xx
 number 100
 no huntstop
ephone-dn yy
 number 100
 preference 1
ephone-dn aa
 number 100
 preference 2

ephone XX
 button 1:xx 2:yy 3:aa

Use the same number on multiple DN's and then assign multiple DN's to the phone buttons.
