The automatic upgrade feature of FreePBX poses a number of risks to your system, including changing the cluster members to incompatible states. Telium recommends that you disable the automatic upgrades and only perform upgrades following the steps outlined in the HAAst operations guide (see https://telium.io/topic/upgrade-to-configuration-generator-freepbx/).

Aside from risks to the cluster, configuration generators sometimes release updates that break the PBX (only to be fixed by updates a week later). Many commercial installations using configuration generators avoid updates altogether, unless absolutely necessary (for a feature or security update). Even then, updates should be carefully tested before being promoted to production servers.

In our experience most mid to large Asterisk(TM) installations do not use configuration generators, so this problem will primarily affect home office and small office users.
