Recently we've been rolling out UCS 5.5.1 for our VVXs and noticed that, even using the same dialplan, the behavior has changed for on-hook dialing. For instance, a VVX 400 was updated from UCS 4.0.6 to 5.5.1. Before, when the phone was on hook, I could put in an extension number and it would automatically dial the extension when the timeout was reached. Now, that doesn't happen, I have to push send or dial off hook to automatically send the call. Is this expected? I have been playing with the dial plan to no avail.
We use 3-digit extension numbers as such: 2xx

Thanks Steffen, that was it. It was set to dialplan.userDial.timeOut="0" by default which meant it was disabled, the admin guide does not mentioned that. After changing it to a value above zero it is working. Appreciate it, thanks again!
