I’ve setup music on hold on our linux asterisk 1.8 box and I want to use the asterisk box as a SIP music on hold device only. Basically we are going to have our Microsoft Lync users point to the asterisk box 'email@example.com’ for music on hold. What ive done is setup ext 1001 in asterisk to play music on hold, but it seems that it only handles one user. When I call in to 1001 I get a fast busy tone for my second caller while the first caller hears the MOH from asterisk just fine. Is there a better way to set this up than what I’m doing now? Thanks!
Here is my setup:
exten => 1001,1,Answer
exten => 1001,2,SetMusicOnHold(default)
exten => 1001,3,WaitMusicOnHold(999)
