I had to shutdown and move an Asterisk 11 server and Cisco SPA508G phone system last week. When I restarted everything, the phones stopped updating line status, therefore BLF stopped working. When I checked “core show hints” it showed there were way more watchers on each line than we had phones.
I unplugged all of the phones and checked “core show hints” and it still showed watchers. Then I checked “sip show peers” and it showed all of the phones “online.” I rebooted Asterisk (Ubuntu 14.04 server) and it still showed the disconnected devices “online.”
Is this normal?
