we have a dell poweredge 2850 with both TE410p and TDM2400P cards installed in it. i am having issues getting the system to load asterisk properly, and it comes down to the way the cards are loaded via the rc.local file.
when the server is rebooted, the following commands are run:
however, asterisk will not load on it’s own - i get errors about channel 1 not existing and the zaptel subsystem does not load.
if i go back and rmmod both drivers and MANUALLY load everything, then i’m able to launch asterisk fine. in other words, the same set of commands run at startup do not work, whereas running them manually does work.
here is my zaptel.conf, i suppose this might have something to do with it.
we are using e&m wink signalling for our LD service (1-72 and 85-96) and kewlstart for the local (73-84) - yes, the fourth T1 is split, and yes the local come first. the wildcard is used to connect to our IVR (not asterisk based, yet) and is running on channels 97-120.
i’m stumped, and i’m getting sick of having to manually reboot and load the modules for this one server. if anyone has any thoughts, i’d love to hear them.
