No Asterisk CLI Output

Hi all, I have worked with straight asterisk for a while but an new to freePBX. I have installed asterisk v 1.4.22 and the latests freePBX over top of that. I have a voicemail problem that I would like to trouble shoot. Problem is that even with verbosity turned to 6 I get no realtime output in the asterisk CLI. Also all the SIP debugging options seem to be missing. (set sip debug , etc)

Is there some trick I am missing?
