old and test servers have same server ID, does it cause performance issues

We are planing to move confluence server to new machine with IP differ, we are testing the process and currently running confluence 3.4, we copied the data to new server and brought up, but I noticed that original server and test server have same Server IDs, does It cause Performance or License Issues or any other Issues, Please let me know.

one more Doubt: Is there any possibility to take users and groups backup excluding data and other things?

Thanks in advance.Thanks!

Go to your atlassian account - for the same server id you will get developers id...copy it and paste it on your test environment,

Thanks for the information and quick response,

Does we have any Script and Prepared step by step process(documentation)?

Script and Documentation for ?

Confluence moving to new server and then upgrading to new version.

As for users and groups - you need to do it at database( considering you are using JIRA INTERNAL DIRECTORY)

How to conform that whether using JIRA Internal directory or not?

Login to JIRA - go to User Management - on the extreme left column , you will see the type of directory used , if it is internal jira directory - it says so as displayed,

I am seeing that User Directories is delegated LDAP authentication and not seeing that Confluence is using JIRA's User server.

Is it possible to check from Confluence side, what type of authentication being used?

Found that its authenticating against AD, test server is working fine currently except backup issue. Now need to go 3.5.x,

When moving to 3.5 getting the attached error

Check your default backup location - that must have been changed.

What do the logs say ?
