    hi,
    i use mondo to backup my elastix server and use the elastix backup feature thereafter.
    now, i think i'm going to have to do a fresh install on elastix but don't want to restore everything from the previous backup as there is obviously something broken.
    what sort of granularity does elastix restore give me?
    eg can i just restore the trunks, moh files, etc?
    thanks
    louis

    what the backup does is tar of what you select at the momento of the backup. So you can un tar the file on test server or virtual machine and select just what you want. Keep in mind that the backup module, does not work when you upgrade from previous version. For example if you backup from 1.3 and what you use to this backup for Elastix 1.5 it won't work as expected. The best way to upgrade would be to do a yum update.

    Regards,

    yep, a backup from v1.3 will bring you some troubles, I have done that, but after the restore I had to do some upgrades on the unembedded freepbx, tipically do the upgrades on the modules that needed them.

    I'll recommend you to try it first with a test server, if everything goes well, then do it on your production server
