How to – Add conferences for add on servers to a cluster

This article will show you how to add additional servers to your cluster and make sure all the conferences are also added. Its just a few simple steps needed to have it done for you.

Step 1 – Adding the second server(or 3rd, 4th, 5th, whatever)

There is a SQL script already created that does all the hard work for you, just follow the commands below:

mysql -A asterisk
\. /usr/src/astguiclient/trunk/extras/second_server_install.sql
vicidial conferences
This should be the output you see if done correctly

Step 2 – Updating the IP from to your new server IP

For this part, there is a perl script that will update the conferences and vicidial conferences as well as the new server that was added to your GUI as “TESTast”. Just copy and paste the following line into your Linux CLI:

/usr/share/astguiclient/ --old-server_ip=

Then make sure you add your IP to the third question it asks you as shown below:

vicidial conferences
Changing the server IP

Step 3 – Run the script

Now we need to run the script to connect the second server to DB server

cd /usr/src/astguiclient/trunk

Make sure when you get to the DB server question you input your DB server IP(where the blue arrow is)

Change DB server IP

Step 4 – Change the name of the server in the ViciDial GUI

Make sure to change the name of your server and update the Asterisk version and trunks

Change TESTast to your new server name
Change your asterisk version and trunks

Thats all there is to it, you should now have your second server added to your cluster. IF you have any questions feel free to comment here or stop by our Skype Live support
