How to safely restart Bamboo on a production server

How can I safely restart Bamboo on a production server? I do not want to interrupt any ongoing builds.

What I always do is:

* login to Bamboo as an admin

* disable all agents

* wait for any running builds to complete. Once they are complete, no new builds can start because the agents are disabled.

* now restart Bamboo, monitoring the log

* once Bamboo is running and the log indicates it's accessible, login as admin again and enable all the agents.

Thanks Ken, this is exactly the kind of process I was looking for.

you should be able to restart using the following command:

/etc/init.d/bamboo restart

(hoping you are running bamboo as a service)

You have to wait until the builds are finished or terminate them.

Safe restart of Bamboo will be available with Bamboo 3.3 .

Hi Przemek,

Is safe restart available in 3.4 and does it mean I can restart the bamboo server without terminating builds in progress on remote agents?



You can pause the server, but you will have to wait until all builds are finished.
