    Can you please come out with a better way to replicate the database from the primary 3CX server to the secondary 3CX server instead of the current backup/restore method? A realtime replication approach where both 3CX servers are up and all services on both 3CX servers are up at the same time would be great.

    The need to have unique gateways/SIP Trunks with unique inbound/outbound rules per 3CX server is critical.

    Where might you need a solution like this? In a corporate environment where a redundant 3CX server is hosted remotely at a DR site such as a Data Center or remote building.

    I agree! Failover would be much more transparent to the user if both systems are active.

    yeah,
    3CX failover feature needs to be improved to be a real-time database replication,
    also LAN to LAN linux scripts must be available, or using the linux HA feature between two linux machines.
