I have been searching google, yet I can’t find an answer on the question. I have been tasked with upgrading the Asterisk servers at my workplace from 1.8 running on Ubuntu 12.4 to AsteriskNow 13.
First, I know very little about Asterisk, yet I have been watching all of the videos on youtube to try and catch up. I also know very little about Linux as my primary focus is in Windows and networking.
I currently have AsteriskNow installed on two new servers which are being setup for the migration process. I will have them in an HA pair and running to two different switches on the same subnet. We have an old access database which was used to provision phones and configure the dialplan. The extensions have “macro” at the end in the dialplan as well.
Is it possible to pull all of the old extensions as a CSV file to import into the new AsteriskNow server via the bulk extension module? What all should I migrate over other than just the extensions? How do I migrate those things over? Since I’m going from 1.8 to 13 will I have conflicts in syntax, modules, etc?
I apologize for all the questions, I really am just in the dark here and am trying my best to make this work.
