Server ID shows as $action.sid

This is a new installation on Redhat using MySql, following the installation docs. Tried following the KB article

http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Server+ID+Shows+as+%24action.serverId+or+%24action.sid

But the serverid.jsp file fails with the error message Failed to find component: No bean named 'setupSidManager' is defined

Searching for select * from BANDANA where BANDANAKEY like 'confluence.server.id' in the database returns an empty set. Is there a suggested insert statement that I could run against the database?

Hey Brent,

According to our support ticket, you just needed to manually insert the serverid via database. Everything's good now. :)

Support was able to answer my question

This can be fixed with an insert statement into the database.

INSERT INTO BANDANA (BANDANAID,BANDANACONTEXT,BANDANAKEY,BANDANAVALUE) VALUES ('6','_GLOBAL','confluence.server.id','<string>YOUR-SERVERID-GOES-HERE</string>');

Where 6 in the BANDANAID value is different than any other entry. You can find this by running the command "select BANDANAID from BANDANA;" and just seeing what ID number isn't being used.
