/etc/dahdi/assigned-spans.conf
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Assigns span number and initial channel number for spans in each device.
Just like system.conf it may be generated with dahdi_genconf:
dahdi_span_assignments auto
dahdi_genconf
It may also be edited manually to allow reserving span and channel
numbers for specific devices.
/etc/dahdi/span-types.conf
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Theoretically, this file is similar to assigned-spans.conf. It allows
setting the type (E1/T1) of a "PRI" span. This cannot be configured
anywhere else: it needs to be done before the span is assigned as it
changes the number of channels the span has.
In practice most systems don't mix E1 and T1 and thus this file will
typically have at most a single wild-card line setting all cards to be
either E1 or T1.
