This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to create a dialing rule entry for a dialing rule group on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Unified Messaging (UM) dial plan. After you create an in-country/region or international dialing rule group on a UM dial plan, you must create a dialing rule entry for the dialing rule group.
A dialing rule entry is used to define the telephone numbers and number masks for in-country/region and international calls that can be made by UM-enabled users who are associated with a UM mailbox policy. Each dialing rule determines the types of calls that users within a dialing rule group can make. However, you must correctly configure the dial rule entry with a valid number mask and a dial number. After you create a dialing rule group and define the appropriate dialing rule entries on the Dialing Group Rules tab, you must add the appropriate dialing rule groups from the UM dial plan to a UM mailbox policy on the Dialing Restrictions tab.
Before You Begin
To perform the following procedures, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Recipient Administrators role.
For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.
Also, before you perform these procedures, confirm that a UM dial plan has been created.
To use Exchange Management Console to configure a dialing rule entry
In the console tree of the Exchange Management Console, expand the Organization Configuration node, and then click the Unified Messaging node.
On the UM Dial Plans tab, select the UM dial plan that you want to manage.
In the action pane, click Properties.
On the dial plan Properties page, under the Dialing Rule Groups tab, under In-Country/Region Rule Groups or International Rule Groups, click the Add button.
On the Dialing Rule Entry page for the In-Country/Region Rule Groups or International Rule Groups, enter the following information:
- Name Use this list to select the name
of an existing dialing rule group or, if you want to create a
dialing rule group, type the name of the dialing rule group. This
box can contain only text characters. The display name for the
dialing rule entry can contain up to 32 characters.
- Number mask Use this box to define the
number mask for the dialing rule. A number mask is used to define
the telephone number format that a Unified Messaging server will
use to determine what outgoing telephone number it will dial for a
user. An example of a valid number mask is 91425xxxxxxx. This box
can contain only numbers and the letter "x".
- Dialed number Use this box to define
the dialed number for the dialing rule. The dialed number is used
to determine the actual dial string that is sent to the IP gateway.
This number can be different from the number that is obtained by
Unified Messaging for the outgoing call. However, your Private
Branch eXchange (PBX) can also be configured to omit the area code
for local calls and can be configured for private voice numbering
plans. Any wildcard (x) characters that are included in the dial
string replace the digits from the original number that were
matched by the number mask on the dialing rule. An example of a
valid dialed number is 9xxxxxxx. This box can contain only numbers
and the letter "x".
- Comment Use this box to enter a comment
or description for the dialing rule that you are adding or
modifying. By default, this box is blank.
- Name Use this list to select the name of an existing dialing rule group or, if you want to create a dialing rule group, type the name of the dialing rule group. This box can contain only text characters. The display name for the dialing rule entry can contain up to 32 characters.
Click OK to save your changes.
To use the Exchange Management Shell to configure a dialing rule entry
To configure a dialing rule entry for an in-country/region rule group, run the following command:
Set-UMDialPlan -Identity MyUMDialPlan -ConfiguredInCountryOrRegionGroups <name, allowednumberstring, dialnumberstring, comment>
To configure a dialing rule entry for an international rule group, run the following command:
Set-UMDialPlan -Identity MyUMDialPlan -ConfiguredInternationalGroups <name, allowednumberstring, dialnumberstring, comment>
For more information about syntax and parameters, see Set-UMDialplan.
