MS Lync Server - I need to hold and unhold calls before the recipient can hear me :'(
Lync is awesome and I've nearly got everything the way I want it but I have hit a stumbling block.
Using the Test-CsPstnOutboundCall cmdlet, everything seems fine. Testing an outbound call from either Lync or a Snom 300 handset hits a snag though. The Lync user initiating the call can hear everything in all its HD glory but the remote party cannot hear the Lync user.
By placing the call on hold and then taking it off hold, the problem vanishes. DTMF tones generated by button presses can also be heard... it just seems to be the voice audio.
The setup is a single Lync Standard Edition server with Mediation Server co-located using a VegaStream Vega 50 Europa media gateway to connect to an ISDN-2e line.
