TeamCity 1.1 Install

It would have been nice to get a warning that running the TeamCity 1.1 installer would wipe out all existing projects and user accounts...

Hello Dave,

Thank you for request.
If you have used .exe installer,
Could you please check if you select the path to .buildServer to the old
.buildServer directory in the
installation of TeamCity?

Could you please check the user name under which server is running.
How many .buildServer folders are in your system?

I selected the same TeamCity install directory and options as for the previous installation.

There were two user names - the administrator name and a test user. How do I tell which one the server is running under?

There is one JetBrains.BuildServer folder in TeamCity\buildAgent\plugins\dotnetPlugin\bin, and two other .BuildServer folders - one in Documents and Settings\Default User and one in Documents and Settings\dlorde.000.

Hello Dave,

It seems that one of .buildServer from user home folder is the old one.
Do you use TeamCity as Windows service provided by installer?

If you use .exe installer, you may select path to .buildServer,
otherwise you may set 'system.teamcity.data.path' java system
property.

OK, looks like the one in Default User is the old one.

Yes, I'm using the Windows service.

If you use .exe installer, you may select path to .buildServer,
otherwise you may set 'system.teamcity.data.path' java system
property.


Right, so I should reinstall and select the old .buildServer path.

OK, thanks for the help - I'm getting there (slowly)!

I put "-Dsystem.teamcity.data.path=/panthro/data1/teamcity" in the Tomcat server command line and it did not appear to have any effect. I assume that there is something obvious that I missed?

Thank you,

Donald

Hello Donald,

I'm really sorry, I made a mistake in the property name. It should be "teamcity.data.path".
Could you please try again.
