How to export extensions, routes, etc from CLI

I realize that this might be more of a MySQL question but I’ve got a couple servers that are having major issues with the GUI crashing and the backups aren’t any good. Asterisk continues to run but there’s a lot of things I cant do without GUI access. Still not sure what is causing this but I want to rebuild them on new virtual machine ASAP and will have to do it manually.

How can I run the bulk handler from the CLI and get it to spit out a csv?

Bulk handler fwconsole docs are here, but only import is supported. Easiest is if the flaky machines can run the conversion script:

Thanks a lot for that. For the conversion script, do both machines need to be on the same firmware level?

No, that’s the whole point. It’s for transferring settings between non-matching PBX versions. And this is documented in the linked wiki page.

Maybe another dumb question: I’m trying to transfer my paid modules without having to use a zend reset, whats the best way to do this? Its demanding that I activate the machine before running the “curl -s | bash” command.

Or how can I deactivate the running PBX without using a zend reset?

I guess it doesn’t matter anyway. The old PBX is dead. Asterisk seems to be running but everything else is unusable. I reset the hardware lock and activated the new one, on the old broken one entered: “curl --insecure | bash”, and got the following messages (after entering the ID that the new machine gave me)

Bob, I don’t think you can get there. On the other hand, zend resets aren’t that hard to get and spend. In this case, especially with your machine in chaos, I’d bite the v-bullet and go to town.

Can I deregister the broken PBX and register the new one using that Zend ID and make this work or do both PBXs need to be registered at the same time?

There’s a Wiki on this, but it seems to me you put the new one up, populate it to the best of your ability, and transfer everything from the old deployment ID to the new deployment ID. At least, when I replaced the Methuselah server last year, that’s how I did it.

It doesn’t say anything in the wiki about paid modules. So I guess I’ll just get a new zend ID and see about moving the licenses manually from one zend ID to another.
