.call dial fails with reason 8


I see a lot of

pbx_spool.c: Call failed to go through, reason 8

in /var/log/asterisk/messages, when dialing out with .call files through /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing.

Dose anyone know where this comes from?


I haven’t checked for that failure - but have you checked to make sure that it isn’t a permission or ownership issue. I had calls fail when they were accidently being dropped into the output queue as root, even when permissions were set such that it could have handled them. So make sure the permissions are ok and the ownership is asterisk/asterisk (or what ever user your asterisk runs as).


Thanks for the tip, but the call files are created by a script and most of the time they work fine and the call takes place, so it can not be a permission issue.

Any idea where I can search for the failed reason codes? Tried to figure out it from the source, but could not find it.
