Step 4 Add the route pattern to the Cisco Unified CallManager database by completing the following actions:

I appreciate the guide; it's not the first time Google has brought me here for helpful info. It wouldn't hurt to make the images link to higher resolution versions of themselves, though.

Thanks,

Jason
