System Capacity
The PARTNER ACS release you have, the carrier you use, and the combination
of modules installed, determine the number of available lines and extensions.
PARTNER ACS Release 7.0 allows up to 31 lines and up to 48 extensions.
However, these maximums cannot be achieved simultaneously.
If you want to install a PARTNER Messaging or PARTNER MAIL VS
module, keep in mind that the module uses one of the slots in the
carrier, which reduces the system line and extension capacity.
System Components
The system components include the processor module, the optional line and
extension modules, and the telephones. See the PARTNER Advanced
Communications System Release 7.0 Installation, Programming, and Use guide
for more details.

2 Installing Your System
Quick Reference Guide
Evaluating the Environment
Before you begin the physical installation of the system, you must check that all
environmental factors are within the acceptable ranges. See the PARTNER
Advanced Communications System Release 7.0 Installation, Programming, and
Use guide for more details.
Installing the Control Unit
The stand-alone processor module or a carrier and its modules are referred to as
the control unit. The control unit must always be wall-mounted.
WARNING:
There are no customer-serviceable components inside the system modules
or carrier. There are hazardous voltages within that can cause severe or
fatal personal injury. DO NOT OPEN MODULES.
To install the control unit, you must do the following:
• Wall-mount the control unit.
• Label the jacks.
• Ground the system.
• Insert the batteries into the processor module.
• Initialize the system.
• Check the LEDs on the modules.
• Install the cover.
Wall-Mounting a Stand-Alone Processor Module and a 2-Slot
Carrier
Install the processor module within 5 feet (1.5 meters) of a properly grounded
wall outlet (not controlled by a switch) and the network interface jacks.
14
Evaluating the Environment
Quick Reference Guide
2 Installing Your System
Follow these steps to wall-mount the module(s):
1 Using the enclosed template, mark the screw locations on the wall.
2 Hold the processor module against the wall with the line and extension
jacks facing left. Leave at least 1 foot (0.3 meter) clearance at the top, front,
and right side, and at least 2 feet (0.6 meter) at the bottom and left side.
3 Insert a #8 sheet metal screw into the screw hole at the top of the processor
module.
4 If you are installing a second module, go to Step 5. If you are not installing a
second module (stand-alone configuration):
a Insert another #8 sheet metal screw into the screw hole at the bottom of
the module.
b Tighten the screws until the mounting tracks are snug against the wall.
There must be a 3/8 inch (1 cm) gap between the wall and the rest of the
module. Do not overtighten the screws or the module will warp and fail to
operate.
c Go to the next procedure, “Labeling Jacks,” on page 18.
5 Remove the clear plastic protectors from the connectors on the right side of
the wall-mounted PARTNER ACS processor module and the module to be
added by grasping the tabs on the ends of the protector and lifting.
6 Slide the second module onto the PARTNER ACS processor module,
making sure the mounting tracks interlock.
7 Attach the 2-slot carrier to the top right side of the two modules, properly
engaging the connectors on the modules to the carrier.
8 Fasten the carrier to the modules by using the two #4 screws included with
the carrier.
9 Insert the 3-1/2 inch #8 screw into the bottom of the modules. Tighten it until
the mounting tracks of the PARTNER ACS processor module are flush
against the wall. Do not overtighten or the module will warp. Then go to the
next procedure, “Labeling Jacks,” on page 18.
Installing the Control Unit

2 Installing Your System
Quick Reference Guide
Wall-Mounting a 5-Slot Carrier and Modules
Install the 5-slot carrier within 5 feet (1.5 meters) of a properly grounded wall
outlet (not controlled by a switch) and the network interface jacks. When you
mount the carrier on the wall, leave at least 1 foot (0.3 meter) of clearance at the
top and sides and 2 feet (0.6 meter) at the front and bottom to ensure proper
ventilation.
The location of each module within the carrier is important; place the
modules as instructed in the following procedure.
Follow these steps to wall-mount the 5-slot carrier and modules:
1 Using the enclosed template, mark the screw locations on the wall. If you
are mounting the carrier on plywood, start four #12 screws supplied with the
carrier, leaving the screw heads extending approximately 1/4 inch (0.64 cm)
from the wall. If you are mounting on drywall, use wall anchors, which must
be purchased separately.
2 Before installing any modules, make sure the clear, plastic protector has
been removed from the connector area on the rear of each module. To
remove the protector, grasp the tabs on the ends of the protector and lift.
3 Insert the PARTNER ACS processor module in the center slot of the carrier.
4 In the other slots, from left to right, first install the T1 module (if used) or
1600 DSL module (if used), then the 012E, 308EC, or 206 modules,
followed by the 400 or 200 modules and/or a PARTNER Messaging or
PARTNER MAIL VS module. Align the module carefully in the appropriate
slot. For proper engagement of the connectors, the module must be
inserted straight into the carrier. Once the module is properly seated, firmly
push the center of the module until the connectors on the module lock into
place. A slight click indicates the connectors are engaged.
16
Installing the Control Unit
Quick Reference Guide
2 Installing Your System
• If you use a T1 module, it must be in the first slot on the left. The
012E, 308EC, and 206 modules must be to the left of any 400
and 200 modules. Only one T1 module is supported.
• If you use a 1600 DSL module, it must be in the first slot on the
left. The 012E, 308EC, and 206 modules must be to the left of
any 400 and 200 modules. Only one DSL module is supported.
• PARTNER ACS Release 7.0 supports either one T1 module or
one 1600 DSL module.
• PARTNER ACS Release 7.0 supports Endeavor telephones and
the Endeavor 362EC module. Install the Endeavor 362EC
module(s) to the right of the T1 module or 1600 DSL module, if
one is installed, and to the left of all 400 and 200 modules.
• In Release 7.0, the system extension maximum is 48. However,
in some configurations, the 012E module and/or the PARTNER
Messaging module will physically permit more than 48 stations
to be installed in the 5-slot carrier. In these configurations, only
station ports and voice messaging ports up to 48 will function.
Station ports and voice messaging ports above 48 will not
function with ETR or T/R telephones because they are outside
the PARTNER ACS dial plan.
CAUTION:
Do not force the module. Use the carrier shelf as a reference and do

Labeling Jacks
After you have mounted the control unit on the wall, you must label the line and
extension jacks. The line jacks are on the top of the modules, and the extension
jacks on the bottom.
Follow these steps to label the line and extension jacks:
1 Label the line jacks on the processor module, beginning with “1” at the top
line jack.
2 Do one of the following:
• For a 2-slot carrier, label the line jacks on the other module.
• For a 5-slot carrier, label the line jacks on the other modules by starting
with the leftmost module and ending with the rightmost module.
• Although a T1 module has only one line jack, it supports up
to 16 lines. Therefore, the line jacks on the module to the
right of a T1 module in a 5-slot carrier are numbered starting
with “22.”
• Although a 1600 DSL module has only one line jack, it
supports up to 16 lines. Therefore, the line jacks on the
module to the right of a 1600 DSL module in a 5-slot carrier
are numbered starting with “22.”
3 Label the extension jacks on the processor module, beginning with “10” at
the topmost extension jack.
4 Do one of the following:
• For a 2-slot carrier, label the extension jacks on the other module.
• For a 5-slot carrier, label the extension jacks on the other modules by
starting with the leftmost module and ending with the rightmost module.

Grounding the System
You ground the system by running a solid copper wire from the processor
module to an appropriate earth ground. Follow these steps to ground the system:
1 Attach one end of a #12 AWG or #14 AWG solid copper wire to the
grounding screw on the processor module. The length of the wire must not
exceed 35 feet (7.6 meters).
2 Route the wire through the wire manager on the front of the module.
3 Attach the other end of the wire to the approved earth ground, such as
building steel or a cold water pipe.
Inserting Batteries in the Processor Module
The processor module uses two AAA-size standard alkaline batteries to guard
against the loss of system programming in case of a power failure. These
batteries retain the system programming for 45 days to six months, depending
on the freshness of the batteries. You should replace the batteries every year.
The configuration of the 1600 DSL module is not backed up to the
PCMCIA card. Instead, the configuration is retained in the flash memory
of the 1600 DSL module.
CAUTION:
Batteries and battery cover are packaged in a separate box. If you are
replacing batteries, the old batteries must be removed with the power on or
the system’s memory will be lost.
Follow these steps to insert the batteries:
1 Locate the battery compartment at the bottom of the PARTNER ACS
processor module, below the extension jacks.
2 Push gently on the battery icon (the locking latch) and slide the battery icon
up to cover the plus icon; this unlocks the battery assembly.
3 Remove the battery assembly by gently pulling the tab at the bottom of the
battery compartment cover.

Connecting the Loudspeaker Paging System
Perform the steps in this section if you have a loudspeaker paging system.
Loudspeaker paging systems allow you to broadcast a message over a large
area. The PARTNER system supports all Avaya paging systems, including the
entire PagePac line. The PARTNER system also supports most paging systems
from other manufacturers when the paging systems are connected using a
paging interface device.
If you connect a loudspeaker paging system from another
manufacturer, a paging interface may be required.
Follow these steps to connect a loudspeaker paging system to the PARTNER
system:
1 Insert the modular plug from the loudspeaker paging system into an
available line jack on a PARTNER module. A loudspeaker paging system
can be connected to a line jack on the following PARTNER modules:
• PARTNER ACS R7.0 processor module
• 308EC module
• 400E module, 400EC module
• 200e module
• 206 module, 206E module, 206EC module
• 362EC module
Connecting the Loudspeaker Paging System
25
2 Installing Your System
Quick Reference Guide
• It is recommended that you connect the loudspeaker paging
system to the highest numbered line jack in your PARTNER
system to help prevent any future conflict with your line
assignments. When you connect a loudspeaker paging
system to a line jack on the PARTNER system, that line is
“unavailable.” For example, suppose your system has four
lines, and you connect your loudspeaker paging system to
line jack 4. (The lines are connected to Line jack 1, Line jack
2, Line jack 3 and Line jack 5.) When you administer the
lines, the PARTNER system will label these four lines as Line
1, Line 2, Line 3, and Line 5. Line 4 is unavailable.
• If the loudspeaker paging system requires a “dry contact
relay,” you must connect the loudspeaker paging system to
line jack 5 on the PARTNER ACS R7.0 processor module.
2 Route the cord through the processor module’s wire manager.
3 Connect the other end of the cord to the paging system.

This chapter explains the basics of programming and the programming of
features involved in the setup of the system, including the programming of a
voice messaging system. Refer to the PARTNER Advanced Communications
System Release 7.0 Installation, Programming, and Use guide for more detailed
programming information.
You can program a PARNTER system in either of the following ways:
• from a system display phone at extension 10 or 11
• from a PC that is running PARTNER ACS R7.0 PC Administration software
and is connected to the PARTNER system. With the PARTNER ACS R7.0
PC Administration software, you can administer and maintain the
PARTNER system from your PC.
If the PARTNER system has a T1 module, you must use the PARTNER
ACS R7.0 PC Administration software to configure the T1 module and
its lines and use the All Lines Busy feature.
The remainder of this guide describes how to program the PARTNER system
from a system display phone at extension 10 or 11. If you want to program the

3 Setting Up Your System
Quick Reference Guide
System Programming Basics
After the control unit is installed, you set up the system by using a combination of
the following two types of programming. Use the System Planning Guide when
programming.
• System Programming allows you to customize the system to meet the
needs of your business. When the system is first installed, it uses factory
settings that reflect the most commonly used options. You can change
system settings as needed.
You can perform System Programming from extension 10 or extension 11.
Because an extension cannot be in programming mode and handle calls at
the same time, you should use extension 11 for programming. By doing so,
you can program without disrupting call handling at extension 10.
• Telephone Programming allows telephones to be customized to meet
individual users’ needs. There are two types of Telephone Programming,
depending from where you program.
— Centralized Telephone Programming—programming individual
telephones from extension 10 or 11.
— Extension Programming—programming an individual system
telephone from the extension to which it is connected.
• With the PARTNER ACS R7.0 PC Administration software, you can
perform system programming and telephone programming,
enabling you to administer and maintain the PARTNER system from
your PC.
• If the PARTNER system has a T1 module, you must use the
PARTNER ACS R7.0 PC Administration software to configure the
T1 module.
You need a system display telephone for System and Centralized Telephone
Programming. If you have any 34-button telephones in the system, you must use
a 34-button display telephone to program since an 18-button telephone cannot
be used to program a 34-button telephone. Also, if your system has both
PARTNER and MLS telephones, you should use a PARTNER display telephone
at the programming extension.

System Programming Basics
Quick Reference Guide
3 Setting Up Your System
Endeavor telephones are supported in PARTNER ACS Release 7.0 when an
Endeavor 362EC module is installed in the carrier. The Endeavor telephones are
programmed the same as PARTNER-34D, -18D, -18, and -6 telephones and
have the same button layouts.
• PARTNER ACS Release 3.0 through Release 6.0 included a
PCMCIA Remote Access PC Card, which, among other things, was
used to upgrade the existing software to the latest version.
PARTNER ACS R7.0 does not support the Remote Access PC Card
for upgrades. However, you can still use the Remote Access PC
Card:
— as a storage/backup device for saving your system settings,
which can be used to restore the system in case these settings
are lost for any reason.
— for remote access to the PARTNER ACS via a local or remote
personal computer. This requires a modem and additional
software that must reside on your PC.
• If you are installing a voice messaging system with the PARTNER
ACS, you must assign the voicemail ports to Hunt Group 7 to avoid
having the voicemail ports answering all calls immediately. See your
voice messaging system documentation (such as the PARTNER
Messaging Installation, Programming, and Troubleshooting Online
Guide or the PARTNER Messaging System Manager’s Quick
Reference) for more information.

Programming Overlays
To do System Programming, you place a Programming Overlay over the dialpad
of the system display telephone at extension 10 or 11. (Overlays are provided
with the system documentation.)
You use the following special buttons while programming:
•
N and P cycle forward and backward through the
programming procedures. You can use these buttons to select a procedure.
(If a procedure instructs you to press N + P, pressing
these buttons one after the other enables you to repeat the current
programming procedure.)
•
n and p cycle forward and backward through a procedure’s
parameters. A parameter is typically an outside line, a pool, an extension,
or a telephone list entry.
•
D and d cycle forward and backward through the valid
entries. These buttons work only for fixed data, such as a line or extension
number. They do not work for variable data such as date, time, password,
telephone numbers, or doorphone assignments.
•
r returns the current setting to the factory setting. When you are
programming Line Assignment (#301), pressing r removes lines from
an extension; when you are programming Pool Extension Assignment
(#314), pressing r removes pools from an extension.
•
e ends an entry of variable length, such as a telephone number in an
Allowed Phone Number List.
s starts the System Programming process.
• c starts the Centralized Telephone Programming process (to
•
customize individual telephones centrally from extension 10 or 11).
f, when followed by 00, enters or exits programming mode.
• w enters a “wildcard” (a character that matches any digit dialed) in
•
telephone numbers in Allowed Phone Number Lists (#407), Disallowed
Phone Number Lists (#404), and the Forced Account Code List (#409).

Changing Settings to Support PBX or Centrex
Services
You may need to change some or all of the following features if you want your
system to work behind a PBX or Centrex system.
Consider the following when setting up your system to work effectively behind a
PBX or Centrex system:
• Recall setting
• Dialing restrictions
• Speed Dial and Auto-Dial numbers
Recall Setting
Set the Recall Timer Duration (#107) to match the setting used by your PBX or
Centrex system (usually 800 msec, or “32”). This setting affects the length of a
Recall signal sent by the control unit to access PBX or Centrex services.
Dialing Restrictions
Outgoing Call Restriction (#401) is a PARTNER system restriction intended to
limit an extension’s dialing to “inside calls only” (using the i buttons on
system telephones) or to “inside and local calls only” (allowing calls within the
PBX or Centrex system and local calls outside the PBX or Centrex system).
However, if users in your PBX or Centrex system use a dial-out code (9 on most
PBX or Centrex systems) before dialing numbers outside the PBX or Centrex
system, the PARTNER system cannot prevent toll calls for extensions restricted
to “inside and local calls only” (unless you use Disallowed Phone Number Lists
(#404) to prevent dialing to specific classes of numbers). The Star Code Dial (toll
fraud prevention) functionality may not behave properly behind a PBX due to
• the use of both # and *
• variable length access codes
If your PBX or Centrex system includes dialing restrictions, use those instead of
the PARTNER system restrictions. If you have PBX or Centrex dialing
restrictions on a line and also program PARTNER system restrictions, both the
42
Changing Settings to Support PBX or Centrex Services

3 Setting Up Your System
PBX or Centrex system and PARTNER system restrictions apply. However,
PARTNER system dialing permissions do not override PBX or Centrex system
restrictions.
Speed Dial and Auto Dial Numbers
When you program numbers outside the PBX or Centrex system as Speed Dial
and Auto Dial numbers, include the PBX or Centrex system dial-out code (9 on
most systems), followed by one or more pauses, in the stored number.
Emergency Phone Number List (#406)
Use this feature to create a list of up to 10 telephone numbers that all users can
dial regardless of dialing restrictions, provided they have access to an outside
line. Typical list entries include fire, police, and emergency services numbers.
You can use Emergency List entries to override numbers that would otherwise
be disallowed. For example, if you created Disallowed List entries to prevent
calls to area code 201, but you want to allow calls to a specific number in that
area code (such as the number of a manager who is on call after hours), put the
number in the Emergency List.
Each telephone number can include up to 12 digits. Enter the telephone number
exactly as you would dial it, including any toll prefixes.
To create an Emergency Phone Number List:
1 Press
f00ss#406 at extension
10 or 11.
2 Select a list entry (01–10).
3 Enter the telephone number.
4 To save the telephone number in memory, you must press e.

Voice Messaging Systems
Four voice messaging systems are compatible with your system.
• PARTNER Messaging is a module that sits in the PARTNER two-slot or
five-slot carrier and can have a 2-, 4-, or 6-port configuration.
• The PARTNER MAIL VS Voice Messaging System (PMVS) is a module that
sits in the PARTNER two-slot or five-slot carrier and can have a 2- or 4-port
configuration.
• PARTNER Voice Messaging (PVM) PC Card (2-port configuration only)
• The PARTNER MAIL System (2, 4 or 6-port configuration) is an auxiliary
device that connects to the system through extension jacks.
• The system extension maximum is 48. However, in some
configurations, the 012E module and/or the PARTNER Messaging
module will physically permit more than 48 stations to be installed in
the 5-slot carrier. In these configurations, only station ports and
voice messaging ports up to 48 will function. Station ports and voice
messaging ports above 48 will not function with ETR or T/R
telephones because they are outside the PARTNER ACS dial plan.
• Some older messaging systems may not recognize the full dial plan
available in Release 7.0.

Programming for Voice Messaging Systems
PARTNER Messaging requires programming for both the communications
system and PARTNER Messaging. Some features must first be programmed on
the communications system. Then PARTNER Messaging programming is
performed, followed by additional communications system programming. See
the PARTNER Messaging Installation, Programming, and Troubleshooting
Online Guide or the PARTNER Messaging System Manager’s Quick Reference
for the programming required to use PARTNER Messaging with your PARTNER
ACS.
To program any of the other three voice messaging systems, perform the
following tasks. See the PARTNER Advanced Communications System Release
7.0 Installation, Programming, and Use guide for the procedures to program
these tasks.
• Assign the PARTNER MAIL VS extensions to Hunt Group 7 using Hunt
Group Extensions (#505).
• Set the Transfer Return Extension (#306) for each of the messaging system
extensions to extension 10 (or other extension of your choosing). This
ensures that unanswered calls transferred by the messaging system to
extensions that do not have VMS Coverage return to the extension you
designate as the Transfer Return Extension.
• Program a VMS Cover button (Feature 15) on phones to allow subscribers
to turn VMS Coverage on and off.
• Program Line Coverage Extension (#208) to determine which subscriber’s
mailbox should receive unanswered calls that come in on the specified line.
• Program a Voice Mailbox Transfer button (Feature 14) at extension 10 so
that the operator can transfer calls directly to an extension’s mailbox
without first ringing its telephone. (This is useful when the operator knows
that the subscriber is not available to answer the call.)
• Program an Auto Dial button for the VMS Hunt Group (left intercom
777) on phones for one-touch dialing to the messaging system.
• Use Group Call Distribution (#206 option 1) to assign outside lines that
require Automated Attendant Service to Hunt Group 7 (the VMS hunt
group).

• If Automated Attendant Service will be used at night, make sure a Night
Service Button (#503) is assigned at extension 10.
• Assign appropriate Outgoing Call Restrictions (#401) as well as Allowed
Phone Numbers List (#407) or Disallowed Phone Numbers Lists (#404) to
voice messaging extensions.
Additional Voice Messaging System Programming
Following are additional features used to program the communication system for
a voice messaging system. See Chapter 9, “Using Auxiliary Equipment” in the
PARTNER Advanced Communications System Release 7.0 Installation,
Programming, and Use guide for the procedures to program these tasks.
• Program Automatic VMS Cover (#310) to automatically route an
extension’s unanswered calls to the voice messaging system’s Call Answer
Service after a specified number of rings so the caller can leave a
message.
• Program VMS Cover Rings (#321) individually for subscriber extensions to
determine how many times the extension should ring before the call is sent
to the messaging system to be answered.
• If Automated Attendant Service will be used, set the VMS Hunt Delay
(#506) to meet your business’s needs.
• If Automated Attendant Service will be used, set the VMS Hunt Schedule
(#507) to meet your business’s needs.

Overview
This chapter describes the programming of a few of the most commonly used
system-wide features:
• System Speed Dial
• Dialing Restrictions and Permissions
• Groups of Extensions
A table listing all the system-wide features (designated by a # code) appears
later in this chapter.
System Speed Dial
Program a list of up to 100 frequently-dialed numbers for the system by using
System Speed Dial. After you have programmed the numbers, anyone on the
system can dial a System Speed Dial number by pressing f (or # at
intercom dial tone on a single-line telephone) and the three-digit code, from 600
through 699, for that number. You can mark System Speed Dial numbers to
override dialing restrictions.
A System Speed Dial number can be up to 28 characters in length and can
consist of the digits 0–9, *, #, and the special dialing characters. You assign
the number to one of the codes 600 through 699.

Dialing Restrictions and Permissions
You can restrict outside calling from an extension by using these various
features:
• Allowed Phone Number Lists
• Allowed List Assignments
• Disallowed Phone Number Lists
• Disallowed List Assignments
• Line Access Restriction
• Outgoing Call Restriction

4 Programming System Features
SECURITY ALERT:
While procedures that restrict dialing are very effective, absolute
protection against misuse cannot be guaranteed. System
telephones give you more protection against such misuse than
single-line telephones. Therefore, you should install system
telephones where restricting telephone use is important.
Allowed Phone Number Lists (#407)
Use this feature to specify telephone numbers that users can dial regardless of
other dialing restrictions, as long as they have access to an outside line. For
example, if you restrict an entire category of calls through Disallowed Phone
Number Lists (#404), you can permit calls to a specific number in that category
by placing that number on an Allowed Phone Number List.
You can create up to eight Allowed Phone Number Lists of up to 10 telephone
numbers each. An Allowed Phone Number can be up to 12 digits long and may
include 0–9, #, *, and h (the wildcard character, displayed as !).
SECURITY ALERT:
If you are restricting an extension from placing long-distance
calls, do not place numbers beginning with a “0” on an Allowed
Phone Number List for the extension. Once a user is active on an
operator-assisted call, the user can avoid dialing restrictions by
asking the operator to dial restricted numbers.
To create a list of Allowed Phone Numbers:
1 Press
f00ss#407 at extension
10 or 11.
2 At the List Number: prompt, enter a list number (1–8).
3 At the Entry: prompt, select a list entry (01–10).

begin at Step 2.
6 Select another procedure, or exit programming mode.
Line Access Restriction (#302)
Use this feature to restrict an extension from receiving and/or making outside
calls on a specific line. For example, you may want a secretary to answer calls
on a manager’s line, but not to make any outgoing calls on the line; in this case
you can assign the manager’s line to the secretary’s extension and restrict it to In
Only. Line Access Restriction is useful for phones in “non-secure” areas such as
reception areas and patient rooms.
You can use Line Access Restriction to restrict an extension from accessing the
Loudspeaker Paging Line.

Description...
Calling Group # 502 Group of extensions that can be called at the same time.
Any user in the system can ring or page the entire Calling
Group; the first extension to pick up the call is connected
to the caller. This can be a useful feature for sales pools.
Hunt Group # 505
Group of extensions among which calls are automatically
distributed. A Hunt Group lets you off-load calls from a
single user. You can assign user extensions to Hunt
Groups 1 through 6. Use Hunt Group 7 for voice
messaging extensions and Hunt Group 8 for fax calls.
This can be useful for customer service groups.
Night Service
Group # 504
Group of extensions that can receive calls after hours.
When Night Service is on and a call comes in, all
extensions in the Night Service Group ring immediately,
regardless of normal Line Ringing settings.
Pickup Group # 501 Group of extensions that can be picked up by other
users. When a call rings at a Pickup Group extension,
any other user in the system can answer the call by
dialing the Pickup Group code. This can be useful when
users need to answer calls on lines or pools not assigned
to their telephones.

Overview
As the System Administrator, you should program telephones at individual
extensions with certain features. There are two types of telephone programming:
• Centralized Telephone Programming—programming individual telephones
from extension 10 or 11.
• Extension Programming—programming an individual system telephone
from the extension to which it is connected.
Use Centralized Telephone Programming to program the Required Telephone

• Automatic Line Selection
• Extension Name Display
• Line Ringing
Overview
57
5 Programming Telephone Features
Quick Reference Guide
Automatic Line Selection
This feature determines the line or pool a user is connected to after lifting the
handset or turning on the speaker to make a call. The system looks for lines or
pools in the order specified by Automatic Line Selection and selects the first
available line or pool.
At key extensions, with Automatic Line Selection at its factory setting, the system
first searches to find an idle outside line in numerical order (starting with the
lowest line number). If all outside lines are busy, the system searches for an idle
intercom line. This order can be changed, however, to accommodate your
business needs. For example, a telemarketing firm with a WATS line (line 5) to
reduce telephone expenses would set Automatic Line Selection for all
telemarketers’ extensions to “05, 01, 02, 03, 04, Intercom.” This way the WATS
line is selected first.
At pooled extensions, with Automatic Line Selection at its factory setting, the
system first searches to find an available line in the main pool (pool 880 button 1,
then button 2). If all outside lines in the pool are busy, the system selects an idle
intercom line. However, you can change the order to accommodate a different
automatic line selection. For example, your boss prefers her individual line
(line 15) to be selected when she lifts the handset; then she wants auxiliary pool
881 to be selected, which is used for making international calls. To do this, set
Automatic Line Selection to “15, 881, Intercom.”
If a single-line telephone user intends to place intercom calls and access system
features, Automatic Line Selection for his or her extension should be set to
intercom first for proper operation.
To program Automatic Line Selection for an extension:
1 Press
f00ssc at extension

Line Ringing
This feature determines how each outside line or pool assigned to an extension
rings. You can specify Immediate Ring, Delayed Ring (telephone rings after a
20-second delay), or No Ring.
Delayed Ring is useful for backup coverage on shared lines or pools, such as for
secretaries who cover each other’s lines. No Ring is useful for all extensions
except 10 when an operator answers all calls, or for telephones with no regular
users, such as those in conference rooms.
To change the way outside lines or pools ring at an extension:
1 Press

2 Enter the number of the extension to be programmed for Line Ringing.
The green lights next to the line or pool buttons show the current Line
Ringing settings for all lines or pools assigned to the extension. (If a line or
pool is not assigned to a button, the green light next to that button is off.)
The following ringing options can be shown by the green light next to the
line or pool button:
• Immediate Ring — on steady
• Delayed Ring — flashes slowly
• No Ring — flutters quickly
• Immediate Ring is the factory setting for lines; No Ring is the factory
setting for pools.

6 Maintaining Your System
Overview
Once you have set up your system, you will need to maintain it. For example,
changes in your business may require additional lines or extensions. And to
prepare for emergencies such as power failures, you will want to back up all your
customized feature settings so you can restore the system quickly.
Overview
63
6 Maintaining Your System
Quick Reference Guide
Backup and Restore
You should back up the system programming periodically especially if you are
changing the processor module or upgrading the system, or before and after any
major programming changes. You can back up the programming to either the
internal memory of the PARTNER ACS R7.0 processor module or a
Backup/Restore PC Card. You can back up the programming automatically or
manually. Occasionally you may have to restore programming from the
backed-up file. The PARTNER system will automatically restore the most current
backup file if it detects that the battery backup translation has been corrupted.
• If you make any changes to the system programming, PARTNER
ACS R7.0 will automatically back up the system programming to the
internal memory of the processor at 3 A.M. the next morning.
• If you have a PARTNER Remote Access PC Card, which allows you
to program the system and perform backup and restore functions
remotely or locally with a PC, you can also back up programming to
this card. Backing up programming to a PC Card or a PC (via
PARTNER ACS R7.0 PC Administration software) enables you to
maintain a “removable” backup.
• Using a PC card does not back up the configuration of the 1600
DSL module. This configuration is retained in the flash memory of
the 1600 DSL module, not on the PC card. When the system resets,
the configuration in the flash memory of the 1600 DSL module
becomes the active configuration for that module.

Backup Programming—Automatic (#123)
Use this feature to set up the automatic backup of all programming (except the
system date, and time). When Backup Programming—Automatic is set to Active
Internal or Active PC Card, the information is backed up at 2:00 a.m. on the next
day to either the internal memory of the processor module or a Backup/Restore
PC Card. From that point onward, the information is backed up at 2:00 a.m. on
the first day of each month to either the internal memory of the processor module
or a Backup/Restore PC Card. Active Internal scheduled backups and system
initiated backups are stored in the same file.
If Backup Programming—Automatic is Active Internal or Active PC Card and an
automatic backup fails, a Backup-Failure Alarm message appears (instead of the
system date and time) on the top line of the telephone display at idle Extensions
10 and 11.
See Chapter 7, “If Something Doesn’t Work’ for an explanation of these
messages and suggested corrective actions, and for the procedure for clearing
the Backup-Failure Alarm message.
To change the setting for Backup Programming—Automatic:

Restore Programming (#125)
Use this feature to reinstate your system and telephone programming (except
the System Day and System Time) to the settings saved on the processor
module or a PC Card at the last system backup (manual or automatic). You
should restore the system settings if your system settings become corrupted, if
you make changes and decide you would rather use the former settings, or if you
replace your processor module and want to retain the system settings you had
on the previous processor module. A successful restore takes about five
seconds.
When a restore completes successfully, the Restore Complete
message appears for two seconds at idle extensions 10 and 11. Then a
System Reset—Programming Saved (#728) occurs, disconnecting any
calls in progress. You should warn users before beginning a restore, or
do the restore during nonbusiness hours.
To initiate a restore:
1 If you want to restore from a PC Card, verify that only one Backup/Restore
Card is in the processor module. If you do not have a PC Card installed,
see the PARTNER PC Card Installation Instructions that came with your PC
Card.
2 Press
f00ss#125 at extension
10 or 11.
3 Choose the backup file you want to use for the restore:
• 1 Internal Man.mmddyy, where “mmddyy” represents the date of the
manual backup to the internal memory of the processor module
• 2 PC Card Man.mmddyy, where “mmddyy” represents the date of the
manual backup on the PC Card
• 3 Internal AUTO.mmddyy, where “mmddyy” represents the date of
the automatic backup to the internal memory of the processor module
• 4 PC Card AUTO.mmddyy, where “mmddyy” represents the date of the
automatic backup on the PC Card

used for the internal flash memory files.) You cannot use these files for a
restore; they generate the error message Empty File after you press
e in Step 4.
4 Press
e to start the restore.
If the system detects an error before beginning the restore, the bottom line
of the display shows one of the following messages:
• Insert Card or Insert Valid Card
• Bad File or Bad File-Try Again
• Incompat Version or Incompatible Versions
• Empty File
If the system does not detect an error, the restore begins. One of the
following occurs:
• When the restore has completed successfully, the bottom line of the
display shows Restore Complete for two seconds. All calls in progress
are disconnected, and then the system resets itself. You are no longer in
System Programming mode.
• If the restore is not successful, the display shows Restore Failed or
Restore Failed-Try Again for two seconds. All calls in progress are
disconnected and all of the system and telephone programming settings
revert to the factory settings. You are no longer in System Programming
mode. Try the restore again.

Battery Replacement
The processor module uses two user-replaceable AAA alkaline batteries. These
batteries provide enough power to retain the system programming settings
during a power failure for 45 days to six months, depending on the freshness of
the batteries. When battery power is getting low, the system displays a ChgBat
W/PowerOn or ReplaceSysBat W/Power On message on the top line of
display telephones at extensions 10 and 11 in place of the default day/date/time
message. You should replace the batteries within 45 days of seeing the
message.
The message may flicker on and off as the batteries approach the
low-power threshold.
CAUTION:
Do not turn off the power or remove the processor module before replacing
the batteries! If you do, all settings for system and telephone programming
revert to the factory settings. If you have a Backup/Restore PC Card, do a
backup before changing the batteries.
Change the batteries in the processor module every year, even if the system has
not yet displayed the ReplaceSysBat W/Power On message. Choose good
quality alkaline batteries. (See “Inserting Batteries in the Processor Module” on
page 19.)

Check the LEDs
While a 1600 DSL or 012E module is undergoing a firmware upgrade, the power
LEDs appear as follows:
• The power LED on the 1600 DSL and/or the 012E module is initially steady
green for 10 to 20 seconds, then flashes for another 5 to 10 seconds.
• The LED on the processor module flashes green while the firmware
upgrade is in progress.
• The LEDs on other modules residing in the carrier that are not being
upgraded are off.
Some modules do not display the LED off during a firmware
upgrade of other modules. The power LED on the 1600 DSL
module is steady green and the power LED on the PARTNER
Messaging module is steady amber while firmware is upgraded on
other modules.
The firmware upgrade process occurs for one module at a time. After successful
completion of the upgrade for one module, the system resets and begins the
firmware upgrade of the next module, if required. The firmware upgrades begin
with modules in the left-most slot to the right-most slot of the carrier. Once a

Adding Lines, Pools, and Extensions
As your business grows or changes, so do your needs for your PARTNER ACS.
As you upgrade to newer releases, you must program for new features. As you
expand, you can add lines, pools, and extensions to your system.
If you replace a module with a different type, be sure you check the
telephone and line connections and verify system and telephone
programming. In many cases, you may need to rearrange the
connections and/or change telephone or system programming.
Adding New Lines
How you add new lines to the system depends upon the type of extension you
are adding them to.
Key Extensions
You can add individual lines to pooled extensions or add new lines to key
extensions (all extensions in Key mode; in Hybrid mode, extension 10 and any
extensions set to Key by using Line Access Mode (#301) are key extensions.)
If you add a line to your system, you may need to adjust some line settings:
• Dial Mode (#201) if the new line is a rotary line
• Line Assignment (#301) to assign the line to specific extensions
• Line Ringing (Centralized Telephone Programming) to specify when the
line starts ringing at each extension that has the line
• Line Access Restriction (#302) to limit an extension’s access to the line
Adding Lines, Pools, and Extensions
83
6 Maintaining Your System
Quick Reference Guide
• The system automatically assigns the new line as the last line in the
Automatic Line Selection sequence. If you want to change the order, use
Automatic Line Selection.
Do not use Number of Lines (#104) if you add lines to the system
after initial setup because it changes Line Assignment (#301), Line
Access Restriction (#302), Automatic Line Selection, and Line
Ringing for existing lines back to factory settings. To add a new line
without affecting other settings, use Line Assignment (#301).
Pooled Extensions
You can add new lines to existing pools if your system is configured for Hybrid
mode. To assign a new line to a pooled extension as an individual line, use the
features in “Key Extensions” above.
If you add a line to your system for use in an existing pool, use Dial Mode (#201)
if the new line is a rotary line and Pool Line Assignment (#207) to add the line to
an existing pool.
Do not use Number of Lines (#104) if you add lines to the system after
initial setup because it changes Pool Line Assignment (#207), Pool
Extension Assignment (#314), Pool Access Restriction (#315),
Automatic Line Selection, and Line Ringing for existing pools back to
factory settings. Additionally, it changes Line Assignment (#301), Line
Access Restriction (#302), Automatic Line Selection, and Line Ringing
for individual lines back to factory settings. To change pool
assignments without affecting other settings, use Pool Line Assignment
(#207) and Pool Extension Assignment (#314).
84
Adding Lines, Pools, and Extensions
Quick Reference Guide
6 Maintaining Your System
Adding New Pools
You can create new pools if your system is operating in Hybrid mode. If you add
outside lines for use in a new pool, you may need to use the following features:
• Dial Mode (#201) if the new lines are rotary lines
• Pool Line Assignment (#207) to assign lines to the new pool
• Pool Extension Assignment (#314) to assign the new pool to specific
extensions
• Line Ringing to specify when the new pool starts ringing at each extension
that has the pool
• Pool Access Restriction (#315) to limit an extension’s access to all the
lines in the new pool
• Automatic Line Selection to add the new pool to the extension’s
Automatic Line Selection sequence
Adding New Extensions
If you add an extension to your system, you can probably use Copy Settings
(#399) to copy the settings of an existing extension.
Swapping Extensions
If a user changes location but wants to keep the same extension number, you
can make the change easily by changing the connection at the control unit.
For example, if the users at extensions 29 and 32 switch offices, you can
disconnect the modular plugs from those extension jacks in the control unit. Then
reconnect the plug from 32 into extension jack 29 and the plug from 29 into
extension jack 32. Now the users can take their respective telephones to their
new locations, keep the same extension numbers, and retain the telephones’
programmed settings.
In some cases, some system parameters may also need to be
changed, i.e., pool extension assignments, when swapping extensions.

012E Module Power Management
The power supply used in the 012E module is adequate to power the 12 ETR
ports under normal conditions. However, if too many large PARTNER telephones
(such as the PARTNER-34D) are off-hook with speakerphone volume set to high
levels, the power supply could be overloaded. Power management of the 012E
module eliminates the power supply overload.
When a power threshold is exceeded, all telephones connected to the 012E
module will appear as follows:
• LED display dims to a minimal level
• Speakerphone volume is decreased
To clear this condition, place one of the telephones connected to the 012E
module on-hook. The LED display and speakerphone volume on all telephones
return to normal. If this power management event occurs frequently, you should
consider moving some telephones to available ports on other modules.
