Can a server installation be converted to a data center installation?

Amir Katz Feb 28, 2018

I'm considering Jira Server Desk installation in Server mode. If and when it becomes a critical system, it makes sense to convert it to a Data Center installation.

Is this doable?

Hi @Amir Katz

Yes, you can convert your server installation to DC. Here you can find more info about it: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/installing-jira-data-center-802592197.html

Good explanation. I assume the guidelines apply to core Jira and to Jira Service Desk, correct?

Carlos Aparicio [DEISER] Community Leader Feb 28, 2018

Yes this guidelines apply to Jira Service Desk and Jira Software.

Very much so.  The recommended route for converting from Server to Data Centre is broadly "reconfigure hardware to support DC if necessary, reconfigure some of the Jira Service settings if necessary, flip the flag from Server to DC, and you have your first DC node"
That is quite over-simplified, but note that it does not include a new installation or migration.  You're converting, not moving.
