Busy on Busy guide for Skype for Business

Some general statements to Busy on Busy:
  • It is only available for user homed on Skype for Business Pool (SE or EE)
  • CU3 must be installed on all Pool Members
  • Not working for user homed on Lync 2013 or SBA.
  • Using Busy on Busy requires a Voice Policy in Skype for Business (Global, Sites or User)

IMPORTANT:

The Busy On Busy feature has an timeout of 12min.
If the user got disconnected for a call, e.g he was on disconnected from the network, which can be happened with a mobile phone or if you got connected via Wifi, the busy signal stay active for 12min before it will be reset.
As well remember the Busy Options cannot be configured by any user themselves. This is only an administrative task.


Busy on Busy supports only three different types:

- BusyOnBusy:
If the user is on an active call, the busy signal will be played to the caller.
- VoiceMailOnBusy:
If the user is on an active call, the call will be forwarded to the users Voice Mail
- Off:
If the user is on an active call: all other feature are working as expected, either no answer, or the users local Voice Mail or Team Delegate settings are active

Configuration:

1. Identify the Pool in your topology

Get-CsPool

2. Define the Server Application on the Pool which should host BusyOnBusy

New-CsServerApplication -Identity 'Service:Registrar:%FQDN%/BusyOptions' -Uri http://www.microsoft.com/LCS/BusyOptions -Critical $False -Enabled $True -Priority (Get-CsServerApplication -Identity 'Service:Registrar:%FQDN%/UserServices').Priority




whereby: %FQDN%, Pools FQDN: (only SfB 2015), e.g. SfBFEPool01.domain.local


3. Verify the CsServerAppliaction

Get-CsServerAppliaction | where-object $_.Name -eq "BusyOptions"}


4. Update the Admin Role
This command adds the three new commandlets to the Admin Role.
Which are:
  • Get-CsBusyOptions
  • Set-CsBusyOptions
  • Remove-CsBusyOptions
Updating by using:

Update-CsAdminRole


5. Configure Users

Configuration a user, if he has the Voice Policy for BusyOnBusy generally assigned:

for user with Busy on Busy:

Set-CsBusyOptions -Identity "Thomas Poett" -ActionType BusyOnBusy






for user with VoiceMail on Busy:



Set-CsBusyOptions -Identity "Thomas Poett" -ActionType VoiceMailOnBusy








If you want to remove the BusyOnBusy setting from a user, use:

Remove-CsBusyOptions

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note:
With the current CU3, the BosyOnBusy has an false positive error.
What does this mean.

If you query a user for this Busy Options and the user hasn't configured any setting, the commandlet Get-CsBusyOptions will show you an "red" error.
But this is not an error, it mainly provides the information that BusyOnBusy is NOT configured with this user.
