Intermittent Network Failures


I’m running Freepbx distro 5.211.65-20 with Asterisk 11.13.1 on Vmware Esxi 5.1 host. I recently upgraded from FreePBX Distro 5.211.65-18 to FreePBX Distro 5.211.65-19 and then FreePBX Distro 5.211.65-20 using the scripts. Everything appeared to work fine, however I’m noticing Intermittently my server will go offline. I need to login to through the Vcenter console and ping an external URL to get the network to work again. It’s like the nic goes to sleep but checking the bios, I don’t see anything which would cause issues and when it fails ifconfig still shows eth0 up.

I’ve since upgraded to Freepbx 12 gui and the problem persists.

Anyone see this before? If I perform a new install and restore from backup, will it affect my commercial module licensing, I do have broadcast and appt reminder on it.

Thank you,
