Unused Media Gateway stops Lync 2010 Response Group calls

Over the last weekend we removed our legacy Mitel PBX and replaced our Dialogic Media Gateway with a Sonus SBC 1000.

The Dialogic was left in place but does not appear in any call routing with the idea if we had a massive problem we at least had the infrastructure in place to start failing back.

Today I came back from a meeting and thought to myself “I’ll power off the Dialogic and the Mitel box now”

So I did.

All seemed to be fine – no user complained.

An hour later an external call came into our ServiceDesk Response Group. Which I was not able to pick up. Looking on the Monitoring server we had the following:

10001 - Gateway did not respond in a timely manner (timeout)

Powering the Dialogic on fixed the problem (We could all pick up Response Group calls again).

I have since removed the Dialogic from the Topology and powered it off and Response Groups are still working.
