Ephone Hunt Group

To enter ephone-hunt configuration mode for the purposes of creating and configuring a hunt group for use in a Cisco Unified CME system, use the ephone-hunt command in global configuration mode. To delete a hunt group, use the no form of this command.

ephone-hunt hunt-tag {longest-idle | peer | sequential}

hunt-tag – Unique sequence number that identifies the ephone hunt group during configuration tasks. Range is from 1 to 100.

longest-idle – Hunt group in which calls go to the ephone-dn that has been idle the longest.

peer –     Hunt group in which the first extension to ring is the number to the right (in the list) of the extension that was the last one to ring when the hunt group was last called. Ringing proceeds in a circular manner, left to right, for the number of hops specified when the ephone hunt group is defined.

sequential – Hunt group in which extensions ring in the order in which they are listed, left to right, when the hunt group is defined.
