Set relocation saga

Set relocation saga

Set relocation saga

I moved some digital phones over to IP phones and sent the IP phones to another location.

Customer took one of the digital phones and plugged it back into a working jack.

Set relocation was on and as a result the digital phone acquired it's original extension and changed the extension of the IP phone.

I have set relocation off now.

I am thinking that perhaps I should take that bunch of digital phones and plug them to 're-assign' them extensions with set relocation off.

This customer will rely on set relocation for weekly moves.

RE: Set relocation saga

I am not following what you have done as far as what you did and what location you mean.
Do you mean you plugged in digital sets , removed IP sets then changed the
DN's of the digital sets to what the IP sets were? that is how it should be done.

They are 2 different formats, if you unplug an IP set then plug in a digital set it will not take on the DN of an IP set.

IP sets also need to be deregistered.

RE: Set relocation saga

Look under Telephony Resources and you'll see that IP Sets are configured for a range of extension numbers, and digital sets are configured for a different range of extensions. So you can't renumber a digital extension with an IP set's DN or vice versa without reconfiguring the numbering.

RE: Set relocation saga

I tested set relocation on my own BCM 50 with a digital phone and IP phone. You are correct the digital phone did not grab the IP phone extension. De-registering is key. It was just a theory and I was wrong. So I not am certain what happened.

Thanks for the feedback.
