Copying a set

The following describes the procedure for creating a new set (telephone) by copying all the attributes from another, known good one. This is useful for ensuring that class of service (CLS), voice mail access, and network rectrictions (NCOS) are correctly programmed in the new set. Remember:

The Terminal Number (TN) defines the hardware location of the telephone:

From Release 19, overlay programs 10, 11, 20, and 32 are linked, thus eliminating the need to exit one overlay and enter another. This means the following commands may all be issued in any of these overlay programs.

Note, in this procedure, the DES (description) is also copied and should be manually corrected afterwards to avoid confusion.

Making Multiple Copies

Above we used CPY 1 to make one copy. We can also create more copies, eg, 3 with CPY 3, which is useful when adding a number of new sets. When doing muliple copies, a new prompt appears:

SFMT aaaa - Select format, where aaaa can be: AUTO, TNDN, TN, or DN.

These responses are described below:

AUTO- The system provides new TN's and DN's automatically. Note the TTY output using this command.
TNDN- Manual selection of TN's and DN's. TN and DN are prompted -n- times as defined by the CPY command.
TN- New DN's are provided by the system, TN is prompted -n- times as defined by the CPY command.
DN- New TN's are provided by the system, DN is prompted -n- times as defined by the CPY command.
