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
anyone help?

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
with "YES"

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.

Re: MCR setup

Does the switch alert you with the message "MARP DISABLED" when you enter LD

If so go to LD 17
toggle to PARM
toggle to MARP and type ON (or is it YES)
toggle until REQ: END

Re: MCR setup

True, that is how to turn it on.  However, doing so could change the
HUNT and FDN patterns of nearly every phone - all at once.  The logic
before MARP was, well, different.  "Lowest TN, last TN changed..."
geez it was odd.

Re: MCR setup

LHK also must be set to KEY 10

Re: MCR setup

LHK will not traverse non-Line Key apearences. For example if you have key 0
SCR xxxx
key 1 SCR XXXX  key 2 TRN Key 3 MCR XXXX  even though you set the LHK for
key 3 the hunt sequence will stop at key 1 because the transfer key on key 2
breaks the hunt sequence.
