Hi Philippe,

FishEye and Crucible are distributed in the same package, you just decide to enable one and/or the other by configuring valid licenses. The FISHEYE_INST variable can be used even if you have only Crucible enabled.

You need to move the entire FISHEYE_INST directory, according to the what our documentation recommends:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/Migrating+FishEye+Between+Servers

This will ensure that your repositories and their indexes are moved to the new server.

Hi Philippe,

As you said you have Crucible on "a new server", I understand you had Crucible working on another server before? If yes, you can look at the config.xml of the old Crucible instance in order to check where your repositories were located.

Your best option is to follow this document in order to migrate Crucible/FishEye between servers:

You can migrate the service completely, from one host to another by moving the home directory of crucible. The home dir contains references to the repositories. <fecru_home>/config.xml contains repo connection information while <fecru_home>/var/cache/contains the repo indexes contains . I don't know if that provides a perfectly tailored solution, but, it certainly allows for complete migration of the crucible service from host to host.

Hi Philippe,

If you use the FISHEYE_INST environment variable, copying C:\Atlassian\fecru-3.5.4 is not enough because your data (repository indexes, backups, etc) will not be stored inside this directory. The C:\Atlassian\fecru-3.5.4 directory contains only the FishEye instance binaries.

If you use the FISHEYE_INST environment variable, you need to copy the directory referred to as FISHEYE_INST to the new server as well, and define a new FISHEYE_INST environment variable in the new server.

Also, regardless of using a FISHEYE_INST or not, but if you're using an external database, please make sure that the database server can be pinged from the new FishEye instance server.
