Bamboo 2.2 upgrade guide
Upgrading from Bamboo 2.1 to 2.2
It is strongly recommended that you back up your xml-data directory before proceeding. For full instructions please follow the Bamboo upgrade guide.
If you are using plugins, please make sure that your plugins are compile against 2.2 before upgrading.
Please also note the following important points:
1. Remote agent changes
The default remote agent JAR shipped with Bamboo 2.2 has been upgraded. You will need to upgrade the remote agent JAR files for all of your remote agents, as described below.
- If you want to use the new remote agent supervisor service wrapper, you will need to download and install the new remote agent JAR for all of your remote agents, as described in Step 1 of Bamboo remote agent installation guide.
- If you do not want to use the new remote agent supervisor service wrapper (e.g. you have implemented your own service wrapper), you will need to download and install the legacy remote agent JAR for all of your remote agents, as described in Step 1 of Legacy remote agent installation guide. This remote agent JAR does not include the remote agent supervisor service wrapper.
Please note, your pre-Bamboo 2.2 remote agent JAR files will not work if you upgrade to Bamboo 2.2. You must install one of the two JARs described above.
2. Issue with remote agent home directory on Windows
An outstanding issue exists when installing remote agents on servers running Windows. If your remote agent home directory has space characters (e.g.
/remote agent home), you will not be able to install remote agents. The process will crash when you attempt to run the remote agent (see BAM-3604 for further details).
We recommend that you remove all space characters from your remote agent home directory. Instructions for changing your remote agent home are described in the Bamboo remote agent installation guide.
