I may have failed to understand the documentation for configuring Warm Spare PBX 15+.
My puzzlement is similar to that expressed in: FREEPBX-22335 - Backup & Restore issues
I have a production server running FreePBX16 with latest modules (as of this evening). I configured a warm spare on a separate server, also fully patched.
In the Backup and Restore module I enabled the Warm Spare option, and set
Backup Items > Core > Disable Trunks on Restore? to YES.
My belief was that any (PJSIP) trunk configuration copied from the primary to the warm spare which was ENABLED on the primary would be DISABLED when restored on the warm spare. That is the behaviour I need, since my SIP provider doesn’t handle multiple registrations. Each PJSIP trunk is configured to use Registration: Send.
What I observed was that all of the trunks that were enabled on the primary were also enabled on the warm spare when the backup and warm spare restore job completed.
Thankfully I had set Warm Spare > Apply Configs to NO while testing, so I was able to disable those trunks before applying the configuration.
Is this a PEBCAK (Problem exists between chair and keyboard) or should I raise an issue on the Backup and Restore component?
