Please let me know how can I give evaluation/developer license to dev server while restoring production confluence data by using xml? I guess while restoring prodution data automatically the prodution license will get map to the dev server .. right? If so, is there any issue?
It depends on how you are doing your restore. If you are restoring from an XML backup you will basically set up a new instance with your dev license and import your data into the instance. Your license does not get transfered necessarily.
If you are taking a clone of your <confluence_home> and a dumb of your DB and restoring that into a test insance it is a bit of a different story. What I would do first is install a new copy of confluence on your dev machine and take a copy of the <confluence_home>/confluence.cfg.xml. Use your Dev license to set this up.
You will notice that file contains a few interesting elements.
<property name="confluence.license.hash">xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</property> <property name="confluence.license.message">yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy</property> <property name="confluence.setup.server.id">zzzz-zzzz-zzzz-zzzz</property>
These guys contain all of the licensing informtion on your instance. I would then restore your <confluence_home> <confluence_install> and dump of your DB into your test instnace. Then modify the production <confluence_home>/confluence.cfg.xml with your deve appropriate paths and DB configurations. Then replace your production licensing information with that generated above.
Please lt us know if that makes sense.
