After several hours of experimenting on a freshly built test installation,I have come to the conclusion that:
– if you create a MOH class via Settings/PBX Settings/Music on Hold, and upload a suitable music file(s), then set your Extension/Advanced/MOH Class & Extension/Follow Me/MOH Class to that new MOH class, calls placed on hold will not hear your music file(s) but will continue to hear the default MOH music supplied by asterisk in folder /var/lib/asterisk/moh.
So I cannot make my custom MOH music files work.
Its not a big deal but can you check this sometime and see if you can reproduce the problem?0

Hi Chris. I wonder whether we might be getting different outcomes because of possibly different upgrade histories. That is, if we built our machines with different versions of the software then maybe the subsequent upgrades have slightly different outcomes? I can’t imagine why else it would differ.
On the other issue (Message Waiting), I get the same problem with a Grandstream GXP1610 and a SNOM300 handset. Have tested with a new build on a Raspberry Pi and populated it with data from the production machine’s backup, and the same issue arises. I can force the MWI to light up by doing a core reload. Jose thinks it may be an asterisk issue and is checking that out.

ITs hard to say Tony since you have upgraded and done a fresh install. I’m leaning towards it being an asterisk issue or even a centos issue because they upgraded the core.
MOH broke when I upgraded to 23.02 in the GUI and couldn’t register the T26P.
I did a fresh install several times loaded a back up of the settings and it registered the phoneseventually but MOH still goes to default like you at version 23.03
I suggest to take screen shots of your setup and re-entering settings a new install manually , and not restore from back up settings to really identify if it is purely a build issue. Since The MWI works for me. and MOH works for you we cant form a consensus. If I come accross a anything i’ll let you know0

Perhaps if you reset your phones and re-enterter the settings, Doing so has helped solve problems several times for little bugs like that. even if you try it on just 1 or 2 phones
On the server CLi, try these commands.
How did you setup your moh in the GUI pages?0

Re the MOH, I went to Settings/PBX Settings/Music on Hold/ and created a music class called “MOH” (how original!) and clicked update. Then in that class I uploaded a music file and updated the screen. Thats all I needed.
BUT just now I tried those CLI commands you listed in case they were useful for my MWI problems. The check-integrity command identified some issues and created (amongst others) a folder /var/lib/ombutel/static/moh, and now MOH doesn’t work!
So I dleeted the MOH class and music and recreated them, from the GUI.
I notice that when you create a new music class using the GUI, it creates a new folder in /var/lib/ombutel/static/. In my case the new folder name was 497f4f0215e1b31a, obviously a random hexadecimal sequence. Inside that folder it created a “moh” folder and has my music’s wav file with a random hexadecimal name. Inside the moh folder is a folder with a name like “1” which contains a link back to that wav file.
So although the check-integrity command created folder /var/lib/ombutel/static/moh, that folder is NOT being used to store the moh class and wav file created by the GUI.
This looks like a bit of a bug to me …..0

Hi Tony, Wasnt happy to hear that the MOH issue returned for you. I agree there is a bug on both issues. You saw the creation of a dead moh folder in front of your own eyes. But as you saw the check-integrity is important because you saw the permission issues fixed. which will be important for future upgrades. Perhaps it changes the permission on the moh folder in the static folder and it stops working.0
