I have installed FreePBX Distro, 22.214.171.124, on a Celeron Micro ITX fanless UEFI motherboard of an unknown origin/make. (eBay). Nice little box BTW. But a couple oddities occurred that someone may have some knowledge of.
1). After installation I logged into the CLI locally and no IP was shown after login but a MAC was shown. After looking at ifcfg-eth0 one line had some non fatal error message written. I wish I would have copied the text. A lot of stuff didn’t make sense and a lot of IPV6 lines which I am not using on my network. DHCP was enabled. Anyway, after configuring the file properly and my dns conf file, things worked fine. I was able to login to the web GUI and Restore a V15 backup from another system.
2). I realize that there may be little that FreePBX and it’s underlying Linux core may find compatible with this unknown make, brand, micro ITX Celeron system but if I use System Admin to Shutdown or Reboot, OR the CLI using ‘reboot’, ‘shutdown’ etc., the system appears to Halt with “Rebooting” or “Shuting Down” on the CLI session. Just sits there… forever. I can hold the power button and it will then turn off and I can restart it and the filesystem always comes up clean.
Is there something I should look for in the BIOS that might help this system reboot or fully shutdown? The BIOS only has a hibernate or sleep setting which is disabled.
Thanks for any thoughts or insight!
