    How fresh? Fresh enough that a reinstall with 2.0.2 is no big deal? We know 2.0.2 updates safely, but I think 2.0.3 is still bugged.

    I have successfully used yum update on a fresh 2.0.2 installation without any problems. One thing you can do to ensure that an upgrade doesn't break your Elastix system is to enable rolling back of RPM packages. Every time you go to upgrade an existing package, yum will repack the existing version and store it on the system.

    You can find a guide on how to enable roll back here:
    http://www.vincentverhagen.nl/2007/12/1 ... -5-rhel-5/

    This is particularly useful for production servers of any kind. If you want additional rollback paths, you can install etckeeper which will setup versioning of your /etc directory. It also includes a yum plugin that automatically versions any configuration changes when you perform a yum update. You can find a guide on how to use it here:

    I hope this helps.

    damm it again and dang it

    i thougt it would be ok to install 2.0.3 in production environment ehhhhh

    we used 1.6 but scsi controller just died and have to move to another platrform

    installing sangoma a101 T1 with 2.0 is again nightmare like 1.6

    i think it was not fixed ..... but this is for another post

    I am aware that 2.0.3 can be still bugged but will take that risk

    I updated yesterday 2.0.3 using yum.
    So far the only issue that I had was that the extensions disappeared from the operator panel and the system thinks that there are no extensions.
    However they are still present in PBX-->PBX Configuration, just click save on every one of them and they are working again.
