From a dahdi perspective the Astribank looks well, I can see calls to the unit, the lights come on, and xpp_blink works well but we have lost voltage in the unit, the extensions cannot break dial tone or answer a call.

I don't know if this is somehow related to interaction with the sangoma, the astribank itself failing or otherwise, but it has made my span problem moot for now.
We are going back this morning to do more tests and possibly put it on its own asterisk to see if that helps.
We will also disconnect it from the wiring connector to see if somehow one of the extensions is doing something unpleasant
But any tips would be great. Apologies for changing the topic but I can't find anything out there to give me a clue to an electrical issue.
All wisdom appreciated
Thanks very much
