Does install of Asterisk 11 require a fresh install of the system?

No, it does not.

After a backup do an update as usual:

yum clean all
yum update

and then:

yum erase asterisk18
yum install asterisk11

that should do it

Hi Alex,

Is the recommendation to change from 1.8 to 11 now that 1.8 LTS has gone EOL?

Have any risks / issues been identified with the change?

Cheers,

Greg

Hi Greg, don't know if Alex has seen anything, but we upgraded to 11 and it actually helped a few odd issues we were having with iSymphony. No negative issues yet to report.

Thanks Matthew for the feedback.
We don't have any clients using iSymphony in MT so that isn't of great concern.

Main thing is no little "undocumented features" that will cause us to be chasing our tail for 2 weeks after upgrading putting out bushfires.
