Registering a AsteriskNOW install from a VPS

« Back

The AsteriskNOW registration process requires a valid IP and MAC address on a standard network device (ie. eth0). An OpenVZ VPS container utilizes venet0 as the primary network device, however, it is not possible to assign that device a MAC address.

All OpenVZ VPSs hosted at LYLIX have eth0 activated with a MAC address assigned. This accommodates various software registration requirements, such as for g729 codec licensing (Digium), and is portable (persists even if VPS is migrated). However, since there is no IP address assigned to the eth0 device by default, additional steps are required for AsteriskNOW registration to be successful.

The following steps can be performed from the server's command-line (log in via SSH):
1. Create the eth0 network script
cat > /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 <<EOF
DEVICE=eth0
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=192.168.0.2
NETMASK=255.255.255.255
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
EOF
2. Reboot the server

3. Confirm that eth0 is now assigned the IP 192.168.0.2
ifconfig eth0
The AsteriskNOW installation can now be registered.
