Question about Upgrading Bamboo version 5.7.2 to version 6.6.2 on new hardway and OS version?

We currently run Bamboo v5.7.2 with postgres 9.3.5 DB on RHEL 6.9. We are building new servers with RHEL 7.5 postgres 10.x and Bamboo v6.6.2.

MY question: Is there a way to migrate the data from the old server without doing a stepped upgrade sense we are doing it on new servers, OS version and postgres DB?

Thank you for any help.

Hi @Sam Criswell,

I'm not sure if I understood you correctly but I'll try to share some information about the upgrade:

  • An upgrade from 5.7.2 to 6.6.2 will require an intermediate step to 5.14.x (Bamboo Upgrade Guide)
  • Considering the scenario you have (assuming you don't want to play with Postgres installations) I suggest this:
    1. Upgrade Bamboo to 5.14 in the same server. The only adjust you will need is setting JDK 1.8. Postgres can still be 9.3.x.- Supported platforms (5.14.x).
    2. Upgrade Bamboo to 6.6.2, also in the same server. It can be done with JDK 1.8 and Postgres 9.3.x - Supported platforms.
    3. Clone the instance to the new server using the Alternative cloning scenario approach from Cloning a Bamboo instance.
