How can I do a fresh install from a server clone

We have a bamboo server built using our academic license. We want to run a test server using an associated development license. As the server is a VMWare system I would like to clone this box, rename it and then force a fresh bamboo install and configuration taking the development license and new pointers for the bamboo DB schema. What do I have to do to force bamboo to reset itself and install with a fresh configuration?

Hi Ewan,

To force Bamboo to initilase a new installation, you will have to delete the following file and directory and then restart Bamboo:

# {{$BAMBOOHOME/bamboo.cfg.xml}} file
# {{$BAMBOOHOME/xml-data}} directory

Hope that help :).
