I’ve now had this twice, once on a trixbox system and once on an ubuntu build (recent 1.2 code) , both on 100% different hardware.
Effectively the system dies and won’t restart, or rather when restarting, within a few seconds asterisk has completely hung the system. (it pings but barring this it’s totally dead)
Turns out (100% degree of certainty) that this is caused by corruption in “astdb”. Removing astdb, restarting and then recreating the missing sip entries seems to be a 100% fix.
This is twice in 4 months … the fact that astdb corrupts and when it does yields the system unbootable (need to boot single user to recover) seems to be an absolutely critical flaw, certainly from a user’s perspective.
Both systems were running TE110P cards with 15 incoming lines.
Both systems were 100% diverse hardware down to the TE110.
Please can someone tell me whether this is a known problem and if there is a transparent fix ?
