No such command 'console dial

When I run the console dial 7040 I recieve the following

No such command ‘console dial 7040’ (type ‘core show help console dial’ for other possible commands)

Can anyone help with this ? What do I ned to do


Module not included or failed to load. It could fail to load because the configuration file was faulty.

whats the name of the configurations file ?

Some combination of console.conf, alsa.conf and oss.conf. I’m not sure if these are mutually exlusive.

Your asterisk machine has a soundcard? Without soundcard the console module isn’t compiled.

I have two asterisk server I want to connect, the are both virtuelle, on one the console command

works and on the other I got this fault, regarding the soundcard the are alike.
