We're having a bit of an issue while we were setting up the Cold-standby instance of Confluence.
We've first installed the Active instance, with the production license corresponding to our Server ID.
Additionally, we've installed the Cold-standby, intending to run with the developer license (as I was told by the Atlassian sales-person), and configured the database settings.
(The database is same as the Active server.)
During the database settings, we came across a dialog telling us that everything is going to be overwritten, but that's not what we want to do.
Is there some instructions for setting up a cold-standby instance?
We've read this carefully, but doesn't seem to give us any good hints:
Is it because we're supposed to shutdown the Active instance before setting up the cold-standby instance?
As describe on the ticket. the mentioned message means you are trying to update an existed database that already has contain on it. If you wish to build a staging environment of your Confluence production instance in a nutshell you would need to do the following steps:
Hope it helps.
Hey there, Clustering and cold DR is not the same, that page should not be used for what you describe.
In this scenario the 'install' consists of backing up your production instance (specifically your Confluence HOME dir) and restoring it to the DR box but NOT running an actual installation, as that would indeed try to 'initialise' the database.
The above is nearly no different to:
a) create a database backup
b) zip the Confluence home folder
c) restore database to a new 'dev/offline' instance
d) unpack confluence backup, setup application to point to new home dir, fix the database details in your confluence.cfg.xml.
By doing that, you have a duplicate instance. The same process would work for the cold DR, minus the database restoration....
