Bitbucket Server Migration Licences and Other requirements

Hi Bitbucket Community!

I am trying to migrate our Bitbucket Server Instance from the old windows location to a new windows location, I am very inexperienced with infrastructure and networking so apologies in advance.

Currently the new server location is locked down unable to get access to the internet unless I get specific approval.

The old instance has this licence: Bitbucket (Server) 10 Users: Starter License

I have installed Git + Bitbucket and Now when I boot up the start screen I am met with the "License Key: I need an evaluation licence OR I have a bitbucket licence key

How do I proceed past this point?

Do I get permission to use the internet, log in with the admin Atlassian account and then log into the old instance export the data migrate it across and that’s all done?

What access and ports are required, the direction and the urls to build an approval request?

Hi Nathan,

You don't need internet access from the Bitbucket Server machine to get your license key. You can simply log into from any workstation, where you'll be able to find your existing license key or generate a new evaluation license.
