Description:I have max_members set to 5. I can have 1 admin and 4 none admin callers and the sixth call hears the conference is locked.

If I call the conference with another admin there will be 7 participants. It apears I can add as many admin callers as I like, the max_members varable does not apply to admin users

This is by design.  {{max_members}} will only affect the ability to enter the conference for non-admin users.

Thanks for the reply. May I ask why you would want an unlimited number of admins?

With the max_members not applied to admin it makes it difficult to manage / schedule conference resources. Without this restriction the potential is the system is reduced to a first come first service.

Perhaps a second varable max_admins would be appropriate to service both requirements?
