Hi. I installed FreePBX distro 10.13.66 and I am currently using FreePBX 220.127.116.11 and Asterisk 13.7.2.
I have been experiencing random system crashes, around once a week. Not just a crash to Asterisk but the entire system becomes unresponsive. All phones go offline so outgoing calls can’t be made, incoming calls fail, I can’t connect to the GUI or via remote CLI, as I can’t even ping the server. Nor can I access the CLI on the server itself as the screen remains black and unresponsive. The only fix is to physically power the computer off and back on.
It doesn’t seem to be triggered by any particular action as it will still happen when no calls are in progress.
I’m suspecting maybe an OS or hardware issue may be to blame here, but I’m not sure how to diagnose. Can anyone offer any advice at all please?
I fixed one of those this weekend. It was a 2U case and the power supply fan was set up to blow out through the solid top Replaced the PS with one with a fan on the back and plugged in the rest of the case fans (and replaced the bad two) and now suddenly the server just works…
