Duplicating a Bamboo Server

We want to host a few Bamboo servers that have similar plans to each other so to do this we've built up the plans on one server, taken a backup and installed that backup on another server so we have two servers with the same plans (with a view to modify the new servers plans as needed).

Trouble is, the new server has the same server ID as the original, which means we can't link the apps together and I'm worried there'll be other issues thatare not yet obvious.

Whats the best way to do this and end up with two independent servers with the same jobs on each?

We tried changing out Server ID, seemed to cause a number of conflicts and weird behaviour with a couple of plug-ins.

Decided against it, we'll have to boot a new instance up from scratch which is going to be a bit of a time sink.

Hi Lee,

Note that Bamboo haven't be developed to work on this way. I believe you'll need to manually create the plans, since the Bamboo backup toll is intended to site recovery purposes, not data multiplication.

Try the following - stop Bamboo, change the server id in bamboo.cfg.xml (Bamboo home directory) and purge the content of "bandana" table in db on the clone (this is a bit of a nuclear option, but chances are you don't need what's in there).

Everything Lucas said is true.
