Omega 2+ firmware upgrade
I am currently using several 2+ devices as MPD servers. Some on power dock and some on expansion dock.
Due to experience and familiarity I use Luci and Putty SSH to monitor /administer these devices.
Devices are currently on Firmware Version: 0.2.2 b200
Oupgrade recommends upgrade to Firmware Version: 0.3.2 b233
Last time I upgraded ( admittedly some time ago) the device was left as a clean installation and I had to re-install and reconfigure the necessary components. Whilst this is not difficult, it is time consuming and a little annoying.
Before I go ahead with the upgrade I would like to hear from other users about their experiences.
Does oupgrade still do this and force me to reinstall and reconfigure components?
Has anybody have any experience using Luci to upgrade firmware on the Omega2+?

@Michael-Lynch oupgrade i a script that ultimately runs the sysupgrade command. Sysupgrade does preserve configuration files and has the option -c to preserve the /etc directory. If you are running a custom firmware build you should test it on one of your devices. My own devices do not run oupgrade I prefer to upgrade my devices using my own firmware build which has been updated to pull in the latest updates from OpenWrt.
Can't speak about Luci as I don't use it.
@crispyoz Thanks for your prompt reply. I do not use a custom build. I guess I will have to just try and see what happens.
