i need to know if there is any way we can archive call recordings to external network drive or we can archive to server secondary drive.
Please check the
FAQ here. Everything is explained there.
On some occasions, the amount of recordings that we have in a VitalPBX makes it impossible to make a backup to transfer it to another server. Even though we can do the backup from the console, there might not be enough space on the hard drive to back it up. Due to that the best option is to directly copy all the recordings from one server to another. This can be done manually with scp, however we run the risk that for some reason the copy is aborted and we have to start over.
That said, the bes…
All the steps will be made in the Linux console with root privileges. The aim is to move the monitor folder to a different location, in this case in an additional disk mounted on the server.
1.- Stop Asterisk. This step is essential because stopping Asterisk will stop the creation of new recordings.
systemctl stop asterisk
2.- Copy the data from the old to the new location.
rsync -av /var/spool/asterisk/monitor /newdisk_path
3.- Rename the old data directory.
There are several ways to add more disk capacity to our VitalPBX server, next we will show how to create and connect a remote storage unit.
We have two servers:
1.- VitalPBX Server
2.- Storage Server
Let’s assume that our Storage Server also has Debian 11
Next we are going to prepare our storage server, for which we install the following software.
apt install nfs-kernel-server
We create a folder, which we are going to share with the VitalPBX Server
mkdir -p …
The first step is to format our new disk with the Linux LVM format. After connecting or installing the HD, we will use the command “lsblk” to see the name assigned to our new drive.
Now that we have the name, we will use the command “fdisk” to format the disk.
n (new partition)
(Press ENTER) (Use default partition number)
(Press ENTER) (Use default first sector)
(Press ENTER) (Use default last sector)

Please note that there still an issue and archiving recording not moved and kept on the main Vitalpbx server and that occurs when you search for calls on the Sonata-Recording add-on and them press then on save , that compressed archive file will be generated and saved on the Sonata Directory on Vitalpbx not on the new desk that we moved the Recordings to it.
