    I plan to evaluate 3CX, and installed the latest Windows version onto a Windows Server 2012 Essentials virtual machine. The installation was straightforward, and the wizard went smoothly without any errors. I installed one client (v15) onto a desktop running Windows 10 Pro, and after running the emailed configuration file, the extension (I had assigned the extension "100") registered to the server successfully. Without doing any further setup, I left it all running overnight.

    When I looked at the 3CX dashboard today, the event log showed multiple ID 4101 entries, indicating extensions registering, and then unregistering, and then repeating this process two or three times. A few examples of the registering entries are below
    • SIP Server/Call Manager ID: 4101
      Extension *777 is registered, contact: sip:*777@127.0.0.1:5483;rinstance=225be5b7e7626fbc
    • 01/15/2017 11:37:22 PM
      SIP Server/Call Manager ID: 4101
      Extension 999 is registered, contact: sip:999@127.0.0.1:5483;rinstance=762a6c0d7c3ccf6f
    • 01/15/2017 11:37:22 PM
      SIP Server/Call Manager ID: 4101
      Extension SP10 is registered, contact: sip:SP10@127.0.0.1:5483;rinstance=6bb15c7e0827ec32
    • 01/15/2017 11:37:22 PM
      SIP Server/Call Manager ID: 4101
      Extension SP9 is registered, contact: sip:SP9@127.0.0.1:5483;rinstance=1cd951cd2068216f
    • 01/15/2017 11:37:22 PM
      SIP Server/Call Manager ID: 4101
      Extension SP8 is registered, contact: sip:SP8@127.0.0.1:5483;rinstance=145232546dbbee82
    And here are a few of the unregistering entries:
    • SIP Server/Call Manager ID: 4101

    • 01/15/2017 11:59:43 PM
      SIP Server/Call Manager ID: 4101
      Extension SP10 is unregistered, removed contact: sip:SP10@127.0.0.1:5483;rinstance=6bb15c7e0827ec32
    There were no errors in the logs (these were all informational entries). The most recent log entries showed all of these extensions registering (again), but clicking on the "Extensions" tab, shows just the one extension that I had created (Ext 100).

    Any idea what's going on here? Have I been pwned?! or is this normal behavior?

    Thanks for your help in advance, if anyone happens to know....

    Hello @FathomlessBottom

    What you are experiencing is normal. The extensions you are referring to are system extensions which is specified intervals re-register.
    If you navigate to Dashboard and click on system extensions (it's under the PBX status column) you will find them there.
    I hope this helps
