I have an elastix server that goes bonkers and fills the messages log with this set of errors:

Feb 13 20:45:12 myservername kernel: TDM PCI Master abort

After we turn off the server and reboot it all is fine. I believe that this a sign of a bad card, but am not sure. What else would cause this?

you might want to try booting into the non xen kernel.

I am using some not so great TDM cards and a single processor older Compaq server. The plan was to get all the phones deployed and then upgrade the server when the next budget comes around, which it has. It looks like the analog card of favor is the sangoma ones now. A multi-processor server is also in the budget. What would the upgrade process be like? I am hoping that if I stick with the same distro I can back up and restore w/o a whole lot of total reconfig.

The Older Compaq and flakey clones could well be a problem especially if using the xen kernel, it's just not necessary and justs add that extra level of interrupt routing , just edit your /boot/grub/grub.conf so the default=n points at the non xen version (n is 0 based)

As to migration, I am very happy with mondoarchive, it should clone the system to other hardware without too many problems, once you get your head around the partitioning and the unreadable screens if you don't boot "expertly" and export TERM=vt100 before running the mondorestore script.

For some reason the other kernels do not see the cards and thus make a very poor phone system...
I am pretty sure it is because the kernel modules are not there. I have tried to build the modules but that was back in July and when things were working in the xen kernel I just left it and went on to getting all the stations happy.

As to the mondoarchive, thanks and I will look at that as my upgrade path.

then the ACPI/APIC settings might help, best to just turn both off and set your bios to disable all the normal culprits (com ports printers, modems etc.) you only need a couple free for your WTDM cards, anyway good luck
