Moving to new server on Bamboo 5.9.7

We are running a 2008 R2 server with Bamboo 5.9.7 using an SQL 2005 backend. We are trying to move our data to a 2012 server with SQL 2012 backend, also using Bamboo 5.9.7. 

We weren't sure whether this was considered a clone or a migration,  but decided to start with the migration instructions.

Bamboo 5.9.7 installs successfully, and I have created a Bamboo database that contains the same data (from a .bak export of the production DB) and tell the setup to use the database without overwriting the contents. This step works, and then I try to import the .zip backup of our production install. This step fails.

Where might I go in the log files to examine where there errors were in the import zip? Should I try to just copy the home-directory from the production server? Should the production Bamboo instance be offline while the copy is done?

Thanks,

Stephen

Did you copy over the application data?

Is it part of any of these steps?

If not, I very likely did not. How would I accomplish that step?

There are 2 ways to migrate Bamboo instance: clone everything by hand or use import/export feature. The problem I see is that you are trying to use both these methods at once wink. If you want to migrate Bamboo by cloning DB +app data you don't need to import from .zip. If you want to migrate by importing, you should install Bamboo on empty DB - export zip contains all the data from the DB anyway.

If you still have problems setting up your Bamboo I suggest contacting Atlassian Support
