Music on Hold with Signate Server

We got the new big iron server from Signate running today, and in testing found it still suffers when playing MOH to > 20 calls using MP3 files. Signate uses a database based configuration instead of the normal asterisk flat config files, so I had to change the procedure a bit to get native sound files working.

In SigMAN, Click on “PBX Configuration”, then on “Manual Editor”
Select “MusicOnHold.conf from the popup
Comment out what is in that file, and add:
mode = files
directory = /var/lib/asterisk/moh-default

Hit the update button at the bottom of the window.

You need to clear out the old mp3 files and populate new directory
from a terminal:

rm /var/lib/asterisk/mohmp3/*.mp3
mkdir /var/lib/asterisk/moh-default
(copy transcoded files to that directory)
asterisk -r
restart now
moh show classes
moh show files

You should see the new files and the default class, and the music should be working.
This is really just a slight variation on what is covered here.
