  2. Update Configure Virtual Extension with the User names and Extensions.

    How do I setup Virtual extension in AMETHYST ?

  3. The ini files must be updated and then the recordings software restarted to apply.
    NOTE: This must be scheduled outside recording hours as it will cut recordings and not start recording until software started up and stations loaded for recording.

    First prepare the ini files.
    Organize restart time and then replace the ini once software stopped.

    • Confirm siprecord.ini:

      1. Code: Select all

        NOTE: Where is my changes to the Stations.ini file?

      2. Recording solution (PABX):

        0=|12904|Princess Thwala
        1=|12906|Cynthia Nqidi
        2=|12919|Melissa Jonker

  4. Update recording software with prepared ini files:

    • Disable the checksip scrip in the crontab:

      * * * * * /usr/local/bin/

      Place # infront to comment out:

    • Run the stop SIPRecord script:

    • Update the 2 ini files:

    • Remove the '#' from the crontab
