I am currently running FreePBX 14 for a private school on a HP DL380 G5 server. It’s been running without a restart for well over a year (very impressive).
I was impressed that FreePBX installed at all on this server, since the stock CentOS 7 removed the kernel drivers for this particular model of HP’s SmartArray card.
So my main question is: will I encounter any hardware compatibility issues with upgrading to FreePBX 15? I have read other forum posts stating that the upgrade was easy. I do have kernel updates waiting to be installed, but I am still concerned about the SmartArray driver issue. The last thing I need is to apply system updates and then discover that the OS can no longer see the RAID array.
Yes I do have backups that run every night, but I do not have a spare server if this one is no longer compatible.
Thank you for your advice!
