I am getting this unusual problem and hoping if someone else has experienced this and found a resolution to it.
When i do a reload in the CLI i get these message come up;
Feb 8 15:30:03 WARNING: chan_zap.c:10873 setup_zap: Ignoring resetinterval
Feb 8 15:30:03 WARNING: chan_zap.c:10873 setup_zap: Ignoring switchtype
Feb 8 15:30:03 WARNING: chan_zap.c:10873 setup_zap: Ignoring signalling
All of these are quite important thing, and i would like to know why it is Ignoring them.
We are currently diagnosing a problem with the Spans, after so many calls channels begin to drop out of the pool I.E if we use G-1 or R-1 we loose channel 124 then 123 etc etc etc and the only way to get them back is to do a Restart Now command.
I also notice when we do the reload command the and it configures the channel, it stops right here;
Reconfigured channel 119, PRI Signalling signalling
But yet we have 124 Channels available (Minus the Signalling Channels), I really am stumped as to why this is happening.
For starters when using G-1 It is supposed to start at Channel 124 and work its way down, allways restarting there if the channel is free, this stopped working and whilst the channel is showing as up or on-hook we could not send any calls to the channel.
We then changed to R-1 to the Round Robin system, however this is doing the same thing as G-1, it just starts at 124 and works downwards until it reaches Channel 1 on span 1 and then tries to start at 124 again, although the channel is free I.E it is on-hook it skips it and then goes to the next one Asterisk can speak with.
I Honestly don’t know what is going on, the CONF files have been changed to setups we know work as we have more then one system with E-1 cards installed, but this system is not behaving itself
Any Advice, Hints or information on this problem would be greatly appreciated.
