Hi Alina,

Thanks for the above information.

I would also like to know can I directly upgrade Teamcity from version 6.5.4 to 9.0?, Do we have any limitation ?

If I can't directly upgrade from teamcity 6.5.4 to 9.0. Which version I need to upgrade first?

Please let me know.

Thanks,
Pradeep Kumar A

Hi,

TeamCity supports upgrades from any of the previous versions to the current one. So you can directly upgrade from 6.5.4 to 9.0.

Hi,

If you use Professional version then you can freely upgrade. If you use Enterprise version then you can freely upgrade only if the new TeamCity server effective release date is covered by the maintenance period of the license. It it is not covered the corresponding license will not be valid with the TeamCity version and would need an upgrade. For more details please read our Licensing Policy.

It looks like the new TC installation is not pointing to the data directory of the previous one. Please check startup scripts of previous installation for -Dteamcity.data.path option.

Hi ,

We have the following as below

6.5.4.
====

BIN=`dirname $0`
  cd $BIN
  BIN=`pwd`

  mkdir ../logs 2>/dev/null
  #TEAMCITY_DATA_PATH="/BuildServer/"
  TEAMCITY_SERVER_OPTS="-Dteamcity.data.path=/BuildServer/"
  #TEAMCITY_SERVER_OPTS="-Dteamcity.data.path=/BuildServerCurr/"




9.0.1
====
BIN=`dirname $0`
  cd $BIN
  BIN=`pwd`

  mkdir ../logs 2>/dev/null

  if [ -f "$BIN/teamcity-init.sh" ]; then
    . "$BIN/teamcity-init.sh"
  fi

Hi ,

I did as per you suggestion, It worked, However I slected hsqldb instead oracle Db..

How can I go back and select the Oracle DB ?

Please advice.

Thanks,

If you used Oracle with 6.5.4, you don't need to do anything, TC 9 will continue using the same DB.

The DB selection applies to the newly created instances only (not for upgrade). Since you repointed TC to previous installation, it will catch up the old settings automatically.

The log file doesn't indicate any problem with TC installation. It should work properly.
