since CME-as-SRST does not have the 'Alias' command option (available in call-manager-fallback mode), I was informed that I could re-direct incoming calls towards specific DN's using the BACD script. Every example I have looked at for BACD scripting has Auto Attendant configurations but all I need to do is to redirect a call. Can anyone assist?
My challenge: When in CME-as-SRST mode, re-direct an incomming call headed towards DN 100 to a local ephone with DN 200.

Thank you p.bevilacqua. I just realized I forgot to mention an important part.
I have no staticly configured ephones/dn's, they are all dynamically learned via CME-as-SRST. DN200 is the secretaries phone whereas DN100 is that of an auto attendant. Therefore during failover, DN100 will not be learned by CME-as-SRST because it is not a registered device. I also cannot configure DN100 statically (and set callfwd) because during non-SRST mode, I want the calls to hit the communication manager as opposed to being forwarded to DN200.
Any thoughts? Much appreciated...
Ah yes.. thanks, you are right and I found my problem. It was the matter of configuring an ephone-dn 100 with CFA to DN200 and a preference of 2 (or anything above the default 0). I also needed to configure a dial-peer with destination-pattern 100 with preference of 0 and pointing to the typical CUCM. This ensures that the ephone-dn 100 CFA will not take effect during steady state (non SRST mode) as the preferred dial-peer will get selected which routes to the CUCM. Thanks p.bevilacqua,
