Description (partial)

Symptom:
On Conductor XC2.2 and XC2.2.1, when a guest dials in, then a chair dials in; the both go to a new
conference on the Conductor.  The Guest screen shows the conference name and "Waiting for
conference chair to join.  The Chairperson screen shows the conference name and "You are the only
video call in this conference".  This is the results whether the guest or chair dials in first and whether
the bridge is a TelePresence Server or MCU.  

According to the conductor deployment guide, they should join the same conference though dialing
separate aliases; however this is not the case:

-------
Creating a Lecture-type conference

To test that two or more endpoints can use different aliases to join the same TelePresence MCU conference
based on a template with a type of Lecture, have one endpoint dial 2311@<SIP domain> or
teach.test@vcs.domain to represent the teacher and have the other endpoint dial 3881@<SIP domain> or
learn.test@vcs.domain. All endpoints should be taken to the same conference. The endpoints that dialed
3881@vcs.domain or learn.test@vcs.domain will see a blank screen until the endpoint that dialed
2311@vcs.domain or teach.test@vcs.domain enters the conference.

Conditions:
Two endpoint dials into conductor, one dials the chairperson lecture alias and the other dials the guest alias.
The Conductor should put both into the same conference; however, instead it creates multiple conferences. 
One conference is created with only the chairperson and one is created with only the guest.
