Critical Information for all DPMA users

Will the D40’s work with the latest DPMA update? I have some offices with D40’s still and have had some issues when trying to connect them to a server with the latest DPMA installed, they flat out just give a “authentication failed” no matter which auth method is used (MAC/pin/global pin etc). I’m not trying to raise an issue, just curious if the D40’s should be ok or not.

Yes. Original post updated to include D40.

Will the new SSL certificate (DPMA 3.6.2) expire again? If yes, wouldn’t it be nice to see a warning on the dashboard 1/2 year before it expires?

So phones need firmware updates as well?

I still use 2.9.9 on my D65 phones. But I had to install DPMA 3.6.3 (not 3.6.2), because playing mailbox messages didn’t work anymore. DPMA 3.6.3 is already online, but it seems not in the freePBX repository.
I followed the update instructions for 64-bit systems from here
https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/DIGIUM/DPMA+Installation

EDIT: I seems 3.6.3 is now also available in the freePBX repositories. So there is no need for the terminal…except if someone doesn’t want to update all packages.

DPMA 3.6.3 has been published to the testing repo. Until just now, 3.6.3 RC1 was the latest version available.

Digium Phone Module for Asterisk Version 16.0_3.6.3

Thanks @wmoon

Can confirm, using asterisk 16 and digium phones module the vm button would just blow an error when pushed. 3.6.3 works fine though, I manually installed and will wait for the rpm to come out of testing.

A DPMA update has been published for the 10.13.66 Distro. For anyone still running FreePBX or PBXact version 13 and Asterisk 13, you can upgrade DPMA to 3.4.13 using yum update

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, kmod

Installed Packages
asterisk13-res_digium_phone.x86_64           3.4.13-1.shmz65.1.51           @pbx

CLI> digium_phones show version
Digium Phone Module for Asterisk Version 13.0_3.4.13-centos6

For those running the SNG7 Distro (FreePBX 14 and 15), DPMA version 3.6.3 is now in pkgs repo. You can upgrade to current with a simple yum upgrade or using System Updates in the GUI. Upgrading DPMA requires an asterisk restart.

So I have seen in the last week a bunch of posts that may or may not be related to this and obviously there’s a bunch of post linked to this. What is the expected result of not upgrading. What kind of things will break? Does the whole universe implode or just certain apps stop working?

I am experiencing this now.

PBX 1 and 2:Phones are dropping off registration with Connectivity->Digium Phones area. I have done the Yum_Update procedure and am not receiving the patches I was expecting.

PBX 1 and 2: Did Yum_Update until no further updates found. Stuck at Digium_phones show version ->14.0_3.4.3 (PBX1) 14.0_3.4.8(PBX2)
Both PBX 1 and 2 are:
PBX Version: 14.0.16.4
PBX Distro: 12.7.8-2104-1.sng7
Asterisk Version: 14.7.8

PBX 3:I had a PBX break last Monday and when it was returned on Friday the phones would NOT connect at all. Once I patched using Yum_Update that particular server the phones registered without issue (D6x). In fairness that PBX was V16

Reading previous instructions and post threads it seemed my PBX 1 and 2 SHOULD update out of this.

Updates are available for FreePBX Distro 14 systems. You can confirm the yum version that’s installed with:

yum list asterisk18-res_digium_phone

substitute the actual asterisk version in place of the digits

If the installed version is newer than the running ver, restart Asterisk.

I ran -> yum list asterisk14-res_digium_phone on PBX 1 and 2
Return -> Available Packages asterisk14-res_digium_phones.x86_64 3.4.3-1.sn7 sng-pkgs on PBX 1 and 2

If I’m reading the numbers right PBX1 (show version command) is identical and PBX2 is newer somehow?

For good measure ran fwconsole stop and fwconsole start on both to restart Asterisk

Asterisk 14 is EOL, you should be on 16 at this point:

Fair enough. Thanks for your time.

@lgaetz So when can we expect to have to do this again? I’m assuming there is a new certificate involved and am curious as to when it expires.
