Building Test box from Production


Hello all,

I'm looking to build a test system, based off the current setup / data of our production server. The purpose of this is we are upgrading from to 6.3.4. We've never had a test system to test the upgrade. So would like to start there.

Our data is on an MSSQL db. I've taken a copy of this DB.

I imagined doing this by doing the following;

Build server and install pre-reqs.
Install Bamboo for Windows, install as service and start service
Go to the website and go through the setup wizard.
Connect application to pre-populated database
job done.

Reading through the guides, it seems you can't just install the application on a new server and connect an existing database, correct me if i'm wrong? Seems I may have to do some copy of the production bamboo home directory, ie export this to a zip file then import.

Is this right? I can't just copy the SQL data and point the new instance on the new test box to this?

Thanks in advance


tldr; can I use a pre-populated bamboo MSSQL database for a newly installed Bamboo instance?

Just incase anyones wondering, you can't do this. When in the wizard, if you point the connection to the existing populated database you get the following error, 'Database contains existing data.'

Seems you have to export to a zip file, then import later in the wizard.
