Hi List

I am having trouble running the command

siptest:~# asterisk -rx ‘dialplan reload’

most times it does what I expect and I get a response as below

siptest:~# asterisk -rx ‘dialplan reload’
Dialplan reloaded.

every now and then I get no response i.e.

siptest:~# asterisk -rx ‘dialplan reload’
siptest:~#

and a “verbose 10” setting shows

  • Hi Steve

    I agree – past experience has been hit and miss for me too – I have to do a
    dialplan reload after an external database update and have been advised
    against using AMI as this sometimes hangs and a full reload is needed to get
    the system going again – something I cant do with. Any ideas on how to do
    the reload – and know that it is done world be welcome.
