I am trying to setup a High Availability Voip solution with Asterisk and Freepbx. Everything is in an ESXi 5.1 environment and I am trying to figure out how to make everything work.
I have setup my first server and have everything working for internal calls and have cloned the server to create a new server with an identical setup and have renamed the new server. I am using Heartbeat in Ubuntu 12.04 and have everything configured per this link: http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/Asterisk+High+Availability+Solutions using the Asterisk+Hearbeat+SIP+Multi-homed on Debian/Ubuntu method and can see Asterisk starting and stopping when testing the heartbeat between the servers.
I have also reconfigured my polycom phones to connect to the virtual ip address that is shared between the two servers and can make calls when the primary server is enabled. The issue I am having is having the secondary server pickup where the primary server left off when the heartbeat of the primary server goes offline.
I am new to Asterisk and Freepbx and haven’t been able to find more information on this. Any help would be appreciated.
