I have a few questions regarding the technical implementation of this module, especially the differences between that and FreePBX High Availability, which we still have running on our installations.
Please correct me if one of my assumptions below are incorrect.
-With this module installed, unlike with the old HA where I had a floating IP address, I have two separate machines each with its own IP address.
-They have identical configurations, except that on the standby server the trunks are disabled to avoid registrations coming from two machines simultaneously.
-My non Sangoma phones need to be configured to register to the backup server address if registration to primary is unsuccessful.
-Services like Asterisk, FreePBX, etc are all running on both machines no matter whether in standby or active.
-The primary machine is monitored for the status of Asterisk, FreePBX, database and its network interface.
-If any of those is down a failover will take place which basically only means the trunks are enabled on the standby server (plus execution of a custom hook that I might configure, as well as notifications).
Does option “Bring down Primary server after switchover” mean that primary server will be powered off in case of a failover event?
