@jaredbusch Thanks for the steps. Do you know if you are able to dynamically expand the block storage?
Use LVM with it, doesn't matter weather it's dynamically enabled by Vultr or not, it just is.
I actually didn't know LVM would dynamically allocate it in this situation. Interesting.
Just stop and think about it for a minute and I think you'd get it.
Need to add space, plug in a block device and expand the LV. Need to remove a block device, that's just fine as well (just be sure the VG has enough space to hold all the data after that block device is removed.)
learning question here - when you remove a block device from a VG, does LVM move the data as part of the process of removing the block device?
Yes, so long as there is enough storage space left in the VG, it will move it off the device being removed. Disclaimer: I haven't actually tested this in years.
We didn't upgrade from 13, we did a clean slate build.
So was this for a new install, or for a previous customer? If previous, how did you migrate all of your settings over?
We did it on beta, so it was for internal. Wouldn't do that to outside customers.
PBX are really easy to migrate by hand, no need to bring cruft over. IF you have hundreds of users and complex IVRs, yeah that can be a pain. For a typical SMB, how long does a manual migration take, an hour? And if you are cleaning up craft as you go, pruning extensions, it can be a break even on time.
Since WordPress seems to be recommending the move to 7.X, is it reasonable and desired to install that instead? Even if it is not in the official repositories? (I am, just asking for future reference for others.)
I would install this on Fedora today. If you want to be on CentOS 7, then install the Remi repo and enable the PHP 7.1 repo.
Often sales people and management will ask, "How do I check my voicemail from outside?" I always recommend that they enable voicemail to email, but for those that want it, you can set up a silent option in the IVR.
What I mean by silent option is that you will add another option to the IVR, but you will not announce that option in the recorded audio.
Add another entry and choose the Destination category of Feature Code Admin and then select Dial Voicemail <*98>
With VoIP.ms and PJSIP, you also need to go to the advanced tab and change the default expiration time from 3600 to 120.
I have not tested this with other providers yet as it would be disruptive to a client.
When I have time I will setup a backup provider and change my extension to use that normally and see how things go. The problem is that with a not very used system, it will still reregister every hour, so to catch it, I have to make a call between the fial time and the reregister time.
We run one OC system that is used for a client that has clients that need to move files to and from them from loaned hardware. It's a weird, complicated scenario. But OC works beautifully for it and has for years.
