Question: I can add a user and phone MAC address to the system, however, the phone does not show up as available in the Asterisk System Status page. Is there something I have to trigger to make an extension available?

that shows your vitelity registration is dieing but doesnt show your phones even trying to register… makes me think there is a msconfiguration in the phone somewhere… im assuming you can ping the phones from the Linux command line of the asterisk server? so that you know network connectivity exists… after you went into the CLI did you reboot the phones and look for CLI output?
the phones SIP registration should be pointed at the IP of your asterisk and not at the Vitelity… (programming in the phone itself)
in the phone itself you need to have the SIP username on the phone be the same sip username you used on the asterisk user… presumably the extension number of the phone… whats going to happen is your phone will register to the asterisk as an extension… and then the asterisk will register to the vitelity…
The issue that I was was configuring the phone to work with the Asterisk system. The multiple user names and password fields had me at a loss. Now that I have them in the correct order, I am good to go.
