We're setting up a Disaster Recovery (DR) Server for JIRA.
When i tried syncing the databases of the 2 instances using a 3rd party tool (Navicat). It worked fine, all the issues were in-sync. However, when I tried syncing the oracle archive logs (using Oracle DataGuard) and tried to start the DR-JIRA Server. It started off as a new installation! The logs said that none of the tables were present.
I had previously restored a backup of JIRA before syncing the databases and on the Database CLI said that both databases were in sync
Any ideas on why this is happening?
On your DR-Server, what is the jira.home directory set to? It will have to be a copy (with different dbconfig.xml) to your production instance. If your DR-Server is booting from a jira.home that is 'empty' then it will think you need to set up JIRA
jira.home is generally set in the atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/jira-application.properties (I think the file is) OR can also be set by the system property i.e. -Djira.home=SOMELOCATION
This setting will tell you where JIRA is looking to store it's data (that isn't in the db). This is also where the dbconfig.xml file is that configures how JIRA connects to the database
Thanks for your answer.
Since my DR-Server is a new installation I can't access System Info in order to check what jira.home is set to. Is there any other place I can checn and change it?
Also, could you please tell me where dbconfig.xml is located? I searching in the Installation and Home Directory but couldn't find anything.
