Asterisk 16 won't start after reboot using latest Distro ISO

asterisk

@dicko @billsimon - further update: I read on another post back from 2016 to do a yum downgrade asterisk##*. I did that for asterisk16, which brought down the version to Asterisk 16.15.0 from 16.15.1. I rebooted and asterisk came up as expected. Tested on two PBXs. Thoughts?


(Simon Telephonics) #22

https://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/asterisk/releases/ChangeLog-16.15.1

The changes from 16.15.0 to 16.15.1 look pretty small to me. I don’t see how those changes would cause a crash. But that’s an interesting finding.


#23

Interesting to see what a return to 16.15.1 would results with . .


(Jared Busch) #24

A couple things need to be very carefully clarified here.

  1. Is Asterisk actually crashed.
  2. The status of Asterisk within the FreePBX GUI.

Big point of note #2 can show the flame even if Asterisk is running. I see this very regularly after a reboot. Have for years.

Asterisk is running, and calls are being processed. But the GUI does recognize it. It does require a fwconsole restart in order for everything to get started and controlled by the right processes.

So instead of telling us that Asterisk is crashed and only showing a log of Asterisk starting up, why not clarify what exactly is happening?


(Ben ITSE) #25

Did a yum upgrade asterisk16* which brought back Asterisk 16.15.1 and asterisk is not loading back at boot.


(Ben ITSE) #26

@sorvani - I have clarified. Asterisk is not running. It gets a PID, but it is not running as evidenced by no trunks and extensions are registering or online. Also, it does not show up on the pm2 list as previously stated. Thanks for your input.


(Simon Telephonics) #27

Two more-appropriate ways to determine whether asterisk is running:

ps ax | grep asterisk

and

asterisk -r


(Ben ITSE) #28

@billsimon - I get this when running ps aux | grep asterisk:

And running asterisk -r tells me I am “Connected to Asterisk 16.15.1 currently running on c2cpbx (pid = 2410)” - but that seems to be a false positive… as I mentioned, it does get a PID at boot, but if it was running, why is it not registering any peer? Upon a fwconsole restart peers (trunks, extensions) show up as “online” on the asterisk info report page. Otherwise, they show up as offline and no calls flow in and out.


(Simon Telephonics) #29

It’s not a “false positive” - it is Asterisk running; you have connected to it and seen it in the process list.

What you need to determine is where in the loading process does it stop loading modules. If FreePBX can’t connect and your phones can’t connect, then it is not loading the manager module or the SIP driver.

Please share the contents of /etc/asterisk/modules.conf here.

No hints there; another way to get a hint would be to stop FreePBX (fwconsole stop) and then run Asterisk in console mode with debug: asterisk -cd

Look for errors other than what you have already reported here.

Exit console-mode asterisk with Ctrl-C.

Asterisk Ready.

Any other ideas? I feel like we are narrowing this down.


(Simon Telephonics) #33

I don’t think those two should matter but you could try changing the /etc/asterisk/modules.conf file (don’t worry about the warning at the top; you can edit it).

Get rid of: preload = chan_local.so (this module doesn’t exist in current versions of Asterisk)

Set:

noload = res_pjsip_phoneprov_provider.so


(Ben ITSE) #34

Did those changes to the file, but the issue persisted; reverted changes; rebooted.

However, that got me thinking. We do change the “SIP channel driver” setting from ‘both’ to only use ‘chan_pjsip’.

I switched that back to ‘both’, applied config, and asterisk showed as recently started in the dashboard (yellow triangle) and peers registered :thinking: - so, I left it as ‘both’, rebooted, and asterisk started as expected!

So, I switched that back to “chan_pjsip”, rebooted, and asterisk is doing the same behavior as before. So, looks like we have our culprit. Any ideas on where to go from here??


(Simon Telephonics) #35

Adding noload = chan_sip.so in the modules file would ensure Asterisk does not try to load it.


(Ben ITSE) #36

So, I should try to add that and reboot to see if it loads pjsip? Is there a command that would ensure that Asterisk loads pjsip?


(Simon Telephonics) #37

All modules that exist are attempted to be loaded automatically. The noload prevents it.


(Simon Telephonics) #38

Just to make sure I’m not missing something: you have your trunks and extensions all configured as PJSIP before setting FreePBX to chan_pjsip only, right?


(Ben ITSE) #39

Yes sir… it is one of the first things we do when configuring a PBX from scratch: Change the driver to only use PJSIP. No extensions or trunks are created until that is done and we only select PJSIP.


(Ben ITSE) #40

Just verified that this line gets added automatically to the config when I select pjsip only.
