I am running TeamCity on a windows 2008 R2 server. TeamCity's Build Agent Service as well as Web Server are installed as a service running under LocalSystem. I use the internal storage engine to store the data.
I am trying to upgrade my TeamCity installation to 7.1. After the upgrade TeamCity starts without the data and I am unable to point it to the Data Directory. Since TeamCity is running on a VM, I was able to revert to an earlier snapshot.
Looking under Global Settings for the location of the Data Directory it is given as C:\Windows\system32\TeamCity\.BuildServer. This folder, however doesn't exist.
Starting the tomcat Server Properties window, I looked for Java option -Dteamcity.data.path=C:TeamCity\.BuildServer (Hint from here) option has the value C:TeamCity\.BuildServer which also doesn't exist.
So my question is: how do I go about upgrading to 7.1 while maintainig the data?
thank you very much for your help on this!
