We are running Bamboo Server 6.1 in production and it is currently running with the embedded H2 database. Seeing the critical condition and the risks of running with the H2 database, we want to move the database to another DBMS, say MSSQL Server.
Can someone direct me on how to proceed with this process ? Also, will it also backup the database if I take the Export and import it in the new Bamboo instance with an external MSSQL database ?
You are on right path for production setup. H2 is never recommended for that.
On first part of your question,
On second part of your question,
By "Backup SQL DB" I mean using database specific utility to backup your database.
In your case for "MSSQL" Microsoft gives these options - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/backup-restore/create-a-full-database-backup-sql-server?view=sql-server-2017
Your DBA might be aware of this.
Yes, you are correct DB backup is part of System Export. And hence, you don’t need to backup internal DB separately.
