Couple of questions. I have setup a 2811 router for use as a conference bridge. Is it possible to have it roll over to call manager if that hardware resource is full or down?   Also I know currently for meet me the meeting will use the Media Resource Group that is used by the phone that originates the meet me. Is there a way to have a certain meet number associated with that gateway so that no matter who calls it it will use that hardware?

No my friend. No way to change that. THe phone where the conf is initiated dictates what conf bridge will be used. That is, from the Media REsource List of that phone.

Within the Media Resource GRoup you can configure multiple conference resources, from which CM will select randomly.

MY suggestion would be to add one MRG called HW_MRG and include the router, then add another MRG in the MRGL called SW_MRG and add callmanagers resources in there. THis way, if the first MRG is full or down, it will look at the second MRG in the MRGL hierarchy.

In summary, it is not possible to allocate one conf resource of the other based on the meetme number dialed.
