You need to configure on hold music for a client.

 - it has to be PCM 8kHz, 16bit, mono with maximum length of 90 seconds
 - name it holdmusic.wav
2. Open up "Avaya IP Office Manager" and click on "File > Advanced > Embedded File Management..."
3. Navigate to "System SD > SYSTEM > PRIMARY"
4. Highlight PRIMARY folder and click on "File > Upload File..."
5. Close "Embedded File Management"
6. Open up "Avaya IP Office Manager" and go to System > Telephony > Tones & Music, make sure "System Source" is set to WAV files.

To get more details press F1 in "Avaya IP Manager" and search for "Music on Hold"
