[asterisk-users] Urgent question.

Our provider gives us four PRIs as a trunk group hunt group.  Meaning, the 
provider's switch will cycle through B channels in span 1, 2, 3, ... until 
it finds one that is available.

I have moved spans 2-4 onto another machine.  But we have one remaining
box with a PRI full of calls and I don't know what to do with them; the
box is failing, but dropping them by simply yanking the PRI is not
acceptable from a business POV.

Sending Congestion() or Busy() in the dial plan wouldn't work because
the far-end switch would simply pass that onto the subscriber, rather
interpreting it to mean that the B channel is unavailable and it should
go on to other T1s in the trunk group.

Any ideas?
