I have a group of 4 users that need to share a common MCR key. Each
person has a 2616 with keys 00 and 01 programmed SCR internal
extensions. I have programmed key 10 as the MCR but I cannot figure
out how to roll the call to VM if all of the MCR keys are in use. Can
Re: MCR setup
Here's a list:
Only one phone will control or be the MARP or "Multiple Apearance Prime
Redirection" TN....The TN with primary control over HUNT and FDN.
Set the HUNT to VM's extension.
Go to KEY 10 and retype the MCR DN. In response to "MARP", respond
Now, at an idle time, have two other phones you can use. Call the MCR
DN from one, then while it is riniging, run to the other phone and cal
the MCR DN. If the second phone is sent to voice mail, you are done.
If it does not HUNT, the next step you probably would need anyway is
will fix it. "Do you need the MCR DN to go to VM after X number of
rings?" If so, set the FDN value to VM's DN, and then set the LHK
value to 10. Even though LHK sounds like "HUNT" related, it affects
the FDN as well.
Now back to our test from two phones to see if it HUNTed. It probably
did and now you question "nobody was on the MCR and yet it HUNTed
because during the ringing, all MCRs become active, and hence "busy"
until someone answers.. An example of Nortel briliance and very few
people realizing it could work so stupid. The solution is to use the
MCR key as a super suplement to SCRs. Ex: 2 SCR and 1 MCR in a series
can handle twice the number of calls as 3 SCRs would....well, you
know...the math depends on the number of sets, etc.
