Migrating to SQL Server

We have in production an instance of Bamboo version 3.1.4 buil 2415. 
The idea is migrate to Bamboo to an SQL Server database.
I would like know if Bamboo provide a similar tool included in FisheEye/Crucible 
where the migration to SQL Server can be done from the Crucible administration 
console.
I think that it process is better than the process of create a DB buckup and then 
make a migration with native tools.
 
Thanks in advance.
Kind regards,
Jose

You don't need a db backup / native tools to migrate Bamboo.

The process is fairly easy:

  1. set up a fresh Bamboo instance on SQL server,
  2. export Bamboo into a file from Bamboo Administration console.
  3. Import the file into the new instance (you can also do it during setup of the new instance).

Thanks Przemek.

According to documentation http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO031/Exporting+Data+for+Backup there is a limitation when we performed the exportation.

This limits the maximum ZIP file length to 4GB and exports will fail if the resultating ZIP is over that.
