we had a network outage over the weekend and when my pbx came back up it’s showing as not activated. I lost a NIC on it (had two) and I think that’s what caused the problem. the system has 2 ip addresses (one on the phone subnet and one on production)…the production one is the one that got gone and that’s the one with internet access. I can’t get into the gui network settings because the system admin module needs the activation but when I go to the activation page and press the activate button, nothing happens.

You need working DNS and Internet to activate.
