Cisco IP phone flashing orange for speed dial function

Andy Crawford
Andy Crawford used Ask the Experts™
I have multiple Cisco 504g phones, that don't seem to take the attendant console changes. I have set up the first 3 extensions as a direct speed dial to other extensions on the network (the extension is set as disabled), and all 3 speed dials with flash orange, even though they are subscribed and working. I know to add c=g in the serv subscribing section of attendant console, but these phones seem to not take any changes I make. Hopefully somebody has an answer for this, as these are for a high end hotel, and I cannot have these lights constantly flashing.

That's because you haven't coded well the auto attendant console.

Amber means wrong coded the extension.
Here is an example:

Let say you have a system with 5 extension. Login to the cisco 525, go to advance admin.
Then go to attendant console and if you have only one Unit add this command on each line.


After that you will see the extension added and it will be monitored by the Expansion.
