Lync Server 2013 RGS incorrectly redirects a call to the queue overflow call action

View products that this article applies to.


Consider the following scenario:
  • You deploy the Response Group Service (RGS) in a Microsoft Lync Server 2013 environment.
  • You configure an RGS queue, enable queue overflow, and configure the queue overflow call action.
  • Users call the RGS.
  • The RGS transfers the incoming calls to agents.
  • The queue overflow threshold is not met.
In this scenario, the RGS may incorrectly redirect a new incoming call to the queue overflow call action instead of putting the call into the queue or transferring the call to an available agent.

The issue occurs because of a race condition in RGS. When the race condition occurs, a call that is successfully handled by the RGS is not deleted from the database. When multiple calls are not deleted, the queue overflow threshold can be exceeded. Therefore, the queue overflow call action is triggered.
