Recommended upgrade path from Bamboo 6.7.2 to 8.0.4


Hello, we are trying to upgrade from Bamboo 6.7.2 to 8.0.4 and running into the following error status screen when Bamboo Starts. 

"Bamboo bootstrap failed: Failed to run H2 database upgrade.  Please contact Atlassian Support" 


We are self-support so we don't have the capability to open a ticket/case with Atlassian for help/support. 

Can anyone recommend an upgrade path to take to successfully upgrade?

Hi @Chris Miller

seeing every since and then reports about challenges with the integrated H2 databases I am wondering if it would make sense to migrate to a fully supported database prior to the upgrade.
The H2 database is mostly involved in trial/evaluation scenarios, this might be why it brings not the most perfect stability with it.

In case you are interested in changing databases I found some information here:


Where would I find the full exception log with the stack trace at? 

Under /opt/bamboo_home/<bamboo_instance>/logs, if I look there under catalina.out and access_log I only see WARINGS and INFO entries.  Nothing stands out.  



it's usually at <bamboo_home>/logs. Another option is to export your instance to zip file, then use this file during setup.

As you use built-in H2 database to keep your data I hope count of plans/deployments/build results is not large so it will work for you.
