Card not recognized (Sangoma A500)

Hi,
To give you some context I have a FreePBX 60 appliance, with 2 PCIE cards (a Sangoma A200 for PSTN lines with echo cancellation module, and a Sangoma A500 for ISDN lines)
I was running on FreePBX 14.0.13.23 and Asterisk 13.29.2 and I’m trying now a fresh install with the SNG7-PBX-64bit-1904 release.
The A200 card seems to be working as it should since first install but now I’m trying to make the A500 work and nothing seems to help.
I spent 1h with Technical support of the Reseller I got the cards and servers from until he gave up and said this was out of his scope.
I’m sure the solution is not that complicated, but I haven’t been able to crack it yet so I’d really appreciate your help.

My first step was to check after connecting the card was to go in Dahdi Config in the GUI (as it should normally auto pick up the card, but for some reason that never worked, not even for the A200)
So I had to install them both manually by running /usr/sbin/wancfg_dahdi where the system detects both cards, no problem. I configure all the ports, point to point, dial group 1, FCC, TE127 for all of them, save, restart dahdi and asterisk.
I thought that would fix it, but if the A200 shows up normally with 2 ports in the analog hardware, the A500 is either missing and displaying an error “undefined index: min_ch File:/var/www/html/admin/modules/dahdiconfig/includes/dahdi_cards.class.php:252”, or listed as undefined on all the row., with “Edit” not redirecting to anything.

I always get an error on the dashboard that says “Unable to write to /etc/wanpipe/global.conf” “Please change permissions on /etc/wanpipe/global.conf or disable Sangoma DIGIUM mode”
I had a look but can’t find the file in question, there are only 4 files in that folder: anaconda-ks.cfg ks-post-chroot.log ks-post.log original-ks.cfg
I thought it might have something to do with it because of wanpipe so I might as well tell you.

So I wanted to ask you:
-Is it possible that I did not set up the hardware correctly ? Module in the wrong slot ? Everything is in TE, and the module is on the red side (NT is the green side), in the closest slot to the ports, I plugged the molex connector in and the card is connected to the PCIE port. Right now I have one port with red light on the front panel (and 2 for the A200) The A200 has the FX module and is connected via PCIE too.

Any help would be greatly appreciated !
Thanks,

Jack

That should help too, apparently both are detected but one can’t be configured ?

Found a working solution:
run this
modprobe wcte13xp
dahdi_cfg -vv

apply config and restart dahdi & asterisk
