I had to hunt, but I found an 11.17.1 system :)

'none' does not rotate a log file on this host. Here's my logger.conf:

; Created by makefile on 2020-05-19 at 23:05:08
; from /source/src/obl-server/logger.conf.pre

         rotatestrategy                  = none

         /tmp/ast-log-test               = debug,dtmf,error,event,notice,verbose,warning

; (end of /etc/asterisk/obl/logger.conf)

Thanks in advance,
