BLF light is not updating when changing items like DND or Follow Me

Daemon on PBX is not running.

The BLF light is controlled by a daemon that runs on the PBX. To see if daemon is running, run the command below from your Linux CLI:

  1. You need to start the demon that watches for hints the first time, as this could not be started when there was no license. This script will be auto-started any time amportal or fwconsole start is run, which includes on boot up.

    1. PBX Version 13 or Newer

      1. fwconsole restart restapps

        [root@mypbx]# fwconsole restart restapps
        Restapps daemon stopped
        Running Restapps Hooks
        Starting Restapps daemon
        Restapps daemon done
        [root@mypbx]#

      1. /etc/init.d/restapps restart

        [root@mybox ~]# /etc/init.d/restapps restart

        [root@mybox ~]#
