Reload Realtime Peer

Does anyone know if you can qualify the peer

without pruning it first.

We have extensions in mysql (real-time, cached). All works great, but then a client makes a change. If it was a say, a password change or context change, asterisk will not know about it unless (as they say), you prune it, and load (qualify) it again. However i’m finding the prune works perfectly, but load does not always work. sometimes the phones stay online, but are not actually reachable, other times they go offline until the phones sends a re-register.

I’m wondering if by just reloading the peer, using “sip qualify peer load” without pruning, the new settings will take effect instantly.

Does anyone know this for sure, or have another method?
