Ok - As the following two posts show, moving directly from FreePBX-13/Sangoma 6.5 to FreePBX-14/Sangoma 7 is no longer directly possible…
But there IS a path to do a backup and restore so that ALL of your settings, recordings, and most importantly End Point Manager is preserved - Read on!
Create a Backup of the existing machine.
Scratch-Load 10.13.66 - 64-Bit in a VirtualBox VM - Make sure you clone the MAC address of the old machine - You will also need to do this on a seperate LAN to make sure you don’t interfere with the running machine.
Better than the angry call from the customer because something doesn’t work - like last night at 5:15 as I was walking out the door - Machine I had migrated and I thought I had gotten everything right - the migration lost their custom MOH (which I still had, but didn’t know about until the complaint) and their Announcement that got switched to saying they were closed (A Pizza Place - So Friday night is KILLER).
Both were fairly quick to fix, but once again, our reputation for reliability takes a hit.
Yes this method takes a while, but the box comes back at 100% - No other solution comes close!
