[RESOLVED] Problem with Zaptel and MeetMe Recording

I have no zaptel hardware so my system is using ztdummy. I have multiple servers all working fine, but some new systems I installed are not.

I get this message when I try to record a conference:

app_meetme.c:2463 find_conf: No Zap channel available for conference, conference recording disabled (is chan_zap loaded?)

CentOS 5

lsmod | grep zt

just one more tidbit of information:

It all looks to me like chan_zap is loaded without problem…

any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

I resolved this issue by replacing my Zaptel install with DAHDI. I continued to experience the issue even after the DAHDI modules were loaded.

I eventually tracked the issue down to a missing chan_dahdi.conf file in /etc/asterisk.

I installed the samples using “make samples” restarted and everything is cool.
