    I would like to have voicemails and faxes saved to another volume other then the default. Is there any way to tell it to put thease files in another location?

    HI ...

    Where are you want to save your fax and voicemail?
    Extenernal hard disk, hard disk network share?

    Maybe make a symbolic link to your new device, folder destination.

    I would like to save it to a new volume. I did move it by changing the /var/spool/asterisk in the asterisk.conf file but I had some permission problems and could not get it to work correctly even if I set it all at 777.

    Hi.

    have you try to make a synbolic link?
    Maybe there's others parameters that point at this volume!
    With a symbolic link, you will not have any problem (normally), and you will not break all Elastix config. :huh:
    Only one parameter.

    I think that would be a good way to do it. I will let you all know once I have implemented it.

    The symbolic link worked good. you do need to make sure you use the -p option when copying the existing files to preserve permissions and owner but it worked great. Thanks for you help.
