[SR-Users] Quick way to enable/disable all uac outbound registrations

Hi Henning,

Yes, it would be for the HA setup.

So for example, say we have (I'm making it up):

modparam("uac", "reg_start_disabled", 1)   ## This tells uac module to
start with all records in `uacreg` table disabled.

1- Start kamailio on both nodes (no registrations are sent by any node).

2- Start keepalived on both nodes, some tests are done, the VIP is enabled
on one of the nodes (MASTER). Keepalived would then run a script that would
effectively enable all registrations (looping through all the records in
the uacreg table doing a `kamctl rpc uac.reg_enable ...` or a future
possible `kamctl rpc uac.reg_enable_all` :P).

That way, only the active node would be proactively sending the outbound

I don't see any of this a problem, as right now both are sending
registrations using the same "Contact:", so any incoming requests will be
directed to the active kamailio. This is just to keep things tidy and not
have 2 servers sending outbound registrations when it isn't strictly

What do you think?
