on restore fisheye-data sub-directory is empty

I'm trying to make a copy of production on our sandbox server.

Using the following command:

/opt/atlassian/fecru-3.6.3/bin/fisheyectl.sh restore -f ../fisheyeandcrucible_backup_2015_01_08.zip -j jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/fecru -u fisheye -p <redacted> -t postgresql --force

It seems to be perfectly happy.  But when I start fisheye there are boatloads of errors about "Requested bean is currently in creation: Is there an unresolvable circular reference?" and it shuts down.

The only thing that seems really suspicious is that /opt/atlassian/fisheye-data on the sandbox server is empty.  the sub-dirs that should be there are in the install directory.  But not all the files from prod fisheye-data appear to have made it to staging.  Some, but not all.

Ideas?

As you figured out the FISHEYE_INST environment variable has to point to the folder where do you want the instance to be restored to.  And later still need to be set to the same location when starting restored instance.

This is the documented way of restoring instance, see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/Backing+up+and+restoring+FishEye+data#BackingupandrestoringFishEyedata-RestoringFishEyedata, it should work perfectly fine.

If you still have any issues with some data being not restored please ensure expected data was included in the backup file in the first place.

Hope that helps,

Yep. All was fine after I set the environment variable. Thanks.

I think this is because I didn't have FISHEYE_INST defined.  Things seem better now.  Not quite there.  But definitely better.
