Resolved: PBX component failure (phones/extensions) - November 21

Update November 24 12:04 pm: The repairs to the PBX were completed Friday evening. Those with IP phones will notice that the call history and redial lists that are displayed on their phones show only calls since Friday/Saturday. This is because those call lists are stored on the PBX components that were replaced on Friday evening. Also, some IP phones may prompt for firmware updates and it is appropriate to select “Yes” to install the latest updates for the phone.
