Every time I restart asterisk my all soft phones are not connecting.

When I am checking my peers with sip show peers or sip reload command then I am getting errors:-

No such command 'sip show peers' 


No such command 'sip reload' 

I found the temporary solution but when I restart my asterisk I again encounter the same issue

Temporary solution is to run these commands:

root@xxxxxxx:~# cd /usr/lib/asterisk/modules
root@xxxxxxx:/usr/lib/asterisk/modules# asterisk -rx "module load chan_sip.so"
Unable to connect to remote asterisk (does /var/run/asterisk/asterisk.ctl exist?)


While inside asterisk CLI:

module load chan_sip.so

In both cases it is working only on a temporary basis because every time I restart asterisk then I have to do it all over again. Has anyone got a permanent solution please? I am stuck.

In Asterisk 18 the module chan_sip.so is set to noload in the modules.conf file.

If you want to autoload the module just comment the line by adding ";" in front of noload = chan_sip.so


; Do not load chan_sip by default, it may conflict with res_pjsip.
;noload = chan_sip.so
