I have a Trixbox 188.8.131.52 installation which I am using at home with 2 sip extensions.
Unfortunately, I have 2 issues which I couldn’t solve from either Trixbox or Asterisk discussion boards.
I hope to find an answer/solution here.
1- When I delete a voicemail from user’s mailbox, the SIP NOTIFY message to clear the MWI from sip client is not sent.
If I delete the voicemail dialing voicemail extension, then the sip client receives the SIP NOTIFY and MWI is cleared. But if I delete the voicemail from GUI, I don’t receive the SIP NOTIFY.
Is this related to FreePBX or not ?
2- In some cases, an external call which should be forwarded to multiple extensions because of ring group configuration doesn’t reach the extensions.
When I check the console log, I see that “dialparties.agi” script is returning (-1)
I don’t have any clue why it returns -1.
Yesterday, I found out in this forum that if "$astman = new AGI_AsteriskManager( );“
is replaced with
”$astman = $AGI->new_AsteriskManager();"
then it might solve the issue. Now I am trying this solution and it seems better. But I am not sure if the issue is solved 100% or not.
Because of these 2 issues, I really want to update FreePBX but I am not sure if that would spoil anything in my Trixbox installation.
is it possible to update FreePBX on a Trixbox installation ?
What are the steps for such update ?
I’d really appreciate if I can find answers to my questions above.
Thanks in advance,
trixbox 2.8.x have a “forked” version of FreePBX 2.5.x. As such we can not guarantee that if you upgrade to FreePBX 2.6.0 everything is “as it was before”.
Search in these forums for upgrade possibilities from the “forked” version to The Real Thing.
As for the other issues, I am sorry, but I can’t help you (maybe some other want to step up and help) as I don’t use the trixbox distro and can’t actually tell you what’s wrong with either your voicemail or ring group.
However, if you set verbose level to 5 and look in your logs after you make a call you can see why dialparties return -1. Logs are in /var/log/asterisk
thank you for your comment.
However, I’d like to re-mention that if I listen the voicemail from my phone (dialing in to voice mail box) then Asterisk sends the NOTIFY message.
In the “deleting vm from GUI” case, maybe Asterisk should be triggered by FreePBX…
I don’t know what is the normal behaviour there.
Maybe some FreePBX expert can answer.
I have just tested this on my system, Asterisk 184.108.40.206 using X-lite SIP-phone.
I copied two files into my voicemail directory, msg0000.wav and msg0000.txt and watched on the phone and on the sip dialog:
Thank you very much for testing this for me.
In fact, I really want to install latest Asterisk and latest FreePBX and get rid of Trixbox. But I am very afraid of breaking something.
Currently, Trixbox uses 220.127.116.11-Foncore version.
I already compiled Asterisk 18.104.22.168 but didn’t install it yet.
What happens if I install it ?
Is it possible to return to 22.214.171.124-Foncore if something goes wrong ?
ARI is the Recordings interface found in one of the tab in FreePBX.
I am sorry, but your question about if you break something if you upgrade will be left unanswered. You are running trixbox, and that distro messes a lot with their own build of Asterisk and what not. If you want trixbox support ask in the trixbox forums.
If you want to get rid of trixbox then document everything about your setup, download PBX in a Flash, Fonicaproject or AsteriskNOW and use that instead.
I don’t prefer to use AsteriskNOW or any other “ready to go” PBX distros because I am using the box as a router/firewall/dns and email server as well.
I already have a custom kernel on it.
That’s why I’d like to build latest release of Asterisk and FreePBX and begin using them as fast as possible.
Isn’t that a good way to go ?
And now you say that you don’t have it??? You are quite confusing.
Still, the issue with MWI is an Asterisk issue not a FreePBX one. The issue if something will break if you upgrade, answer is still “I don’t know”. Test it, if it breaks, put the pieces together and try again. Please, remember to take a backup before you begin.
Everything seems fine , except that I still have the "no notify message when deleted voicemail from GUI"
If I delete VM from Asterisk VM extension, I get the notify message for MWI.
But if I delete VM from FreePBX, no notify message is sent.
What is the problem ?
