I’ve installed Asterisk 13.37.0.rc1 on Debian 10 and I have the following issues:
I have to run asterisk once when the system boots up, so that other commands such as rasterisk or asterisk -r will work. Of course this is not a big deal since I’ve fixed it by running it with /etc/rc.local.
Asterisk service actually doesn’t exist! So I can’t do
service asterisk restart(and thus not also
systemctl restart asterisk). Here’s the message I get:
Failed to restart asterisk.service: Unit asterisk.service not found.
Of course I’ve found a way around this by entering the asterisk CLI and running
core restart gracefully/now. However, in our situation, we do need to be able to restart asterisk without entering the asterisk’s CLI as well. Any solutions/thoughts on this? I’ll be thankful.
Also here’s the message I get when I run
Asterisk already running on /var/run/asterisk/asterisk.ctl. Use 'asterisk -r' to connect.
P.S.: Of course also
asterisk -x "core restart gracefully/now" could be used to achieve the goal but I’m specifically asking why asterisk service doesn’t exist? Is this an error or normal? Because on earlier versions of asterisk 13 and on Ubuntu 14 we used to run “service asterisk restart” and it worked.
