Which type of hardware server for asterisk for a production


Hello @everyone,

I want to make a new installation of voip system for a production in a small call center.
Which type of hardware server do I need to install windows server 2012 with and the VMWare ESXi 6.5 on what I want to install CentOs 7 with a from scratch Asterisk 13 LTS?

NB: on an other installation I have some troubles with the connexion to the CLI. I had this message:

[root@localhost asterisk]# asterisk -rvvv
Unable to connect to remote asterisk (does /var/run/asterisk/asterisk.ctl exist?)
[root@localhost asterisk]#
[root@localhost asterisk]# tail -f /var/log/messages

Best regard,


This sounds like another of your recent questions.

My advice would be to use a real machine.

I’ve already told you how find out how to work round this VMWare bug.


So on my hardware server, I install directly my operation system CentOS 7 with Asterisk 13 LTS.
