My org is in the process of upgrading from Bamboo 5.10.2 to the latest version. Our current Bamboo server is running on Windows Server 2012 and the plan is to migrate it to a Centos 7 box with the latest version.
The DB backend will be MSSQL for both the current and new instance. Has anyone done this before or anything similar? Any feed back would be appreciated.
The solution suggested by my colleague might just work fine. Just in case, if you happen to have issues on line endings or something due the operating system shift, you must consider using the export feature and do an import onto a newly installed latest Bamboo 6.x in your Linux operating system.
If you happen to get an error when you hit 'import', it could be that the import file from 5.10 is not compatible. You might want to install Bamboo 5.14 from download archives and generate a fresh export from 5.14 and then import into the latest version.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for your question!
I have not done it personally but I have seen a lot of customers doing it and I can guide you through the steps:
Before you begin:
Performing the Migration+Upgrade:
property name="bamboo.jms.broker.client.uri" ===> For the I.P changes(if any).
property name="bamboo.jms.broker.uri" ===> For the I.P changes(if any).
property name="hibernate.*****" ==> Hibernate related changes for DB specific.
Hope this will help.
I would recommend performing a test upgrade first.
I'll definitely refer to your recommendations during the upgrade/migration process. Thanks again for the detailed response!
I'll make sure to update this thread to detail my steps and hopefully it could help someone else out who is in the same upgrade path as I am.
