    That’s great but lets not forget 3CX works great in a Hyper-V environment. We have had our customers running in Hyper-V failover clustered environments for the last few years. The best part, Hyper-V is free.

    Now if only 3CX could fix their licensing so that when the 3CX server live migrates to another physical node, the license doesn’t have to be re-installed. Please fix this. It would make 3CX a true Hypervisor based server.

      Andy, of course you can use Hyper V. If you migrate to another machine, physical or virtual, you need to reactivate your license. This is the correct way to implement licensing.

    Are there any special configurations needed for 3CX on vsphere? I moved our system to ESX5.5 and it developed a stutter issue on voice mails and recordings. The playbacks all stutter in the same place so I think it is on the recording side. I’ve been googling to find a solution but so far nothing. The system is otherwise responsive so I am guessing I just need to tweak something but not sure what.
    wondering if anyone else ran into this.
    The VM has plenty of resources and the host isn’t overloaded. 10 to 15% CPU load and plenty of memory.
