  I need to know how to make very basic changes to my companies asterisk phone system. Particualarly change names on extensions and voicemail passwords (which I think I figured out that one). I was left very basic instructions on how to do this, which was pretty much, this: Go to the server that contains the extension to be edited (we have a server at each location) and edit the sip.conf file on that server, change the name that is currently there to the desired name, save the changes and go to a terminal screen and do. asterisk -RX "reload"  I have done this and the name on the phones is still not chaning. I have rebooted the phones also and still nothing. Does anyone know what I could be doing wrong or an easy way to do this. Please be very detailed as I know nothing about asterisk or even linux. ( It's running of Fedora if that matters.)
