Server Upgrade

JIRA Team Mailbox Jan 31, 2016

We have a JIRA server (JIRA 6.2) which is running on 2003 windows and we are going to upgrade this server to windows 2008. This is a virtual server and our JIRA is installed on D drive.

I'd strongly recommend preparing for a migration though, in case it doesn't work, and always keep a full backup on another machine.  At the very least, I would keep a database backup and a copy of the attachments - with those two, you can take a new machine, install an empty 6.2, import the database and copy the attachments and start it up.
