Sounds good but I made the mistake off putting a static Ip in the server that did not take so now when I log in to root It shows me to log into http://<your-ip-here> I dont see the static Ip that was entered - off course I did it from the Elastic GUI. Now is there any way that I can from the command line force the system to restart and just pull DHCP? Or and how can I install and added NIC card to the system. Then I would be able to do yum -y install system-config-network-tui, as you said. am also Not too clear on how to edit the files you sojested, as I cant get to the box vie ssh.
Hey dicko you did it again success :cheer: I got it thanks. I just used ifconfig that works for me, am still trying to figure out. vi editor
Now am moving from pbx in a flash to elastix,So this server that am setting up is to move my cisco phone from the PIAF server to this new elastix server. Is there a easy way to move the cisco phones and the main IVR greeting to Elastix, such as just copying a file? or do I have to configer this my self? can you give me some direction on this
Both PIAF and Elastix are based on FreePBX, if the version of FreePBX on both old and new are close enough you should be able to do a backup from the PIAF box and a restore into Elastix (unembedded FreePBX) (copy the backup file from /var/lib/asterisk/backups/<dir_name> to a similar directory on Elastix.)Backup the new box first of course, and be careful what you restore, in your case maybe just the system recordings and the Voicemail, theoretically if they are identical versions (which they likely would be if you are rigorous in your module update discipline) maybe go for the whole shebang and save your self a whole SL of effort, I suggest you you do a full image of the new box (mondoarchive perhaps) first in case you hose anything non-trivial. Then add any Elastix Specific value addons like fax and email, crm and IM . . .
You might need to tidy up a few strings in /etc/asterisk/*.conf s like email return addresses etc. but otherwise IWFM
If the cisco's are tftp provisioned then probably you need your old /tftpboot directory copied over also. just change any IP's of the various servers provisioned with sed if necessary
The export/import abilities of bulk-extensions and bulk-dids (FreePBX add-on modules) can also save you time if you care for a more cautious approach
(these two modules are now in FreePBX 2.6 beta, as are a LOT of other improvements. As to 2.6beta, I personally have no reservations about using it after testing it a few days)
I typed in the /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0 and if takes my monitor to a blan screen with purple hyphens along the left margin. I type in further bash commands and it doesn't respond. Only a reboot clears this issue and doesn't help set a static IP?
