ASTERISK – Move VM issues.

ASTERISK - Move VM issues.

When moving a VM with Asterisk, or another platform dependant package, from for example a VMware Player to VMWare ESXi you might have some issues running the package. In my case after preforming a move from VMware Player to VMWare ESXi using VConverter the ASTERISK package wouldn't start. I received the error message 'Illegal Instruction'. After some Google-ing, trying to convert again using a different VM-version I had an idea of reinstalling the Asterisk package and it worked! Probably when running apt again it installed some additional packages for the new/current chipset. Make sure that you don't overwrite your Asterisk configuration!
