I am using Unity 5.0 with CUCM 7.1. I have set up auto attendants with Call Handler at 2 high schools. One works perfectly. The other is set up a little differently because it is only supposed to work after hours. However, I can not get the after hours one to work properly. Every time I call to check the menus, I get a message telling me, "The example administrator is unavailable please leave a message." I have opened the call handlers up side by on my screens and they are exactly the same as far as I can tell. (I have done this several times and had a colleague do it as well). It's driving me a little crazy at this point. Any help would be appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Example: Create a CH 1 = Open_CH, Create CH 2 = Closed_CH-OpeningGreeting
Greetings > Standard > Source = Blank
Greetings > Standard > After Greeting = Send Caller to Subscriber (Select "Attempt Transfer For") and then the actual Subscriber
Greetings > Closed = Enabled
Greetings > Closed > Source = Blank
Greetings > Closed > After Greeting = Send Caller to Call Handler "Closed_CH-OpeningGreeting"
Closed_CH-OpeningGreeting. The standard greeting will be used. It should say, "For English, press 1. For Spanish, press 2" and repeat in Spanish for Spanish-speaking callers.
Option 1 goes to a new Call Handler. Create CH 3 = Closed_CH-En, record all prompts in English. Do whatever you need for Caller Input as well.
Option 2 goes to a new Call Handler. Create CH 4 = Closed_CH-Sp, record all prompts in Spanish. Do whatever you need for Caller Input as well.
The only is if you need to be able to route to multiple callers on the first action - i.e., calls during open hours are answered with no greetings. You have 2 choices. You can translate the inbound number and the configure it as a generic school number. Ex: 7035551212 translates to 7031091100. This number is a CTI route point to go to voice mail and you have a number such as 7031091000 as a generic VM for the various admins that should answer calls. This number is a subscriber but is set up as a Hunt Pilot with Line Group Members, alternate MWI, etc (or just a shared line). The second choice is probably cleaner for you. You skip the Call Handler for open hours all together. Use ToD routing rules on CUCM and after hours send calls directly to the CH that offers the English and Spanish options.
That's about it.

It almost sounds as if the "Closed Greeting" was recorded incorrectly (in the wrong area). Can you try
recording a new Closed greeting and test this out.
Is the call flow the same for both call handlers??

Rob is likely on to something here. What you are hearing is the default greeting which is, "The

There's not a closed greeting, just a standard greeting. The others are not set up. It sounds fine if I just listen to the greeting from the recording in Unity, but when I dial the number that is associated to the profile in CUCM I get the message.
OK. So, a couple points:
If you want a closed greeting to play based on a schedule - you have to apply both a schedule and record a closed greeting. So, I guess my first question would be to explain what you desire the call flow to be for the Handler that isn't working...that will help determine what you need to set up.
Secondly, if you send screen shots of the various configuration screens - I'll be glad to take a look at them and see how what you have lines up with what you actually want.
Can you do that?

Here is my set up for the profile. There is not an alternate greeting. I recorded a closed greeting and enabled it and I am still getting the same message.
also - before you get too far here it'd be good to make sure you check call flow using the Port Status Monitor (in the tools depot on your desktop) - I can't tell you how many similiar situations I've seen where a site will mercilessly flog a call handler configuration for days only to find out the call is being whip sawed somewhere else due to a call routing rule or an unexpcted forwarding/DID from the phone system etc...
The PSM will show which handlers the call is flowing through as you go - so if you're ending up somewhere unexpected you can see it.
The Port Monitor showed it going to the correct Call handler and then going to the example administrator message. Looked fine until it went to the EA.
OK, so I decided to start over. I deleted the Opening Greeting of the Call handler and started over. I set all of the settings and it still does the same thing!!!
