Description:Some global variables are empty to the dialplan unless I issue a reload command after a restart.



Command: Dial(${OPERADORA-1}/040040001)

"Dial("SIP/4643-00000000", "/040040001,300,M(setmusic^MUSICA-EM-ESPERA)") in new stack"

And after a 'reload' everything is fine:
"Dial("SIP/4643-00000000", "DAHDI/g1/040040001,300,M(setmusic^MUSICA-EM-ESPERA)") in new stack"

I'm not able to reproduce this. Can you provide a dialplan that shows this not working? Also please provide the output of 'module show' before and after the 'reload'.

I'd also like to see the output of "dialplan show globals" before and after the reload.

I use globals all the time, and I've never run into this issue on any version of Asterisk.

Here's the diff between the two files before and after a 'dialplan reload'.

You're not showing me how you're loading the files from the, I presume, included file.

Oh I know why now, so I'm closing this.

The reason is because the func_global.so is loading after pbx_config.so.

In order to make sure the GLOBAL() dialplan function is available when the dialplan loads (which is loaded into memory by pbx_config.so) you need to configure modules.conf to preload => func_global.so

Alternatively you could use the cli.conf file to cause the 'dialplan reload' command to be executed after start up.
