No more team city trial?

As my team and I patiently wait for approval for IDEA 6.0 licenses (We currently have 5.1.2) , I was wondering if there was still a way to test teamcity on our demo app server. We purchased IDEA 5.x before July, so the licenses we have don't work.
Thanks

On the JetBrains site, you can request an 60-days evaluation license for the TeamCity:

http://www.jetbrains.com/teamcity/download/evaluate.html

You'll be able to upgrade your installation with commercial license(s)
without loosing your data.

Kind regards,

Hello,

I am in a similar situation. My evaluation license for TeamCity build 1641 expired today. I tried using the website Kirill mentioned to get a 60-day evaluation license but was told the key is invalid when I entered the key value. I contacted the JetBrains sales dept but they keep sending invalid keys as well. So, right now I can no longer test TeamCity.

Will new TeamCity beta build be available soon? Does anyone know how to get a valid evaluation license so that my testing may continue?

Thanks,
-Dave

The situation is, one usage of evaluation key is allowed per database instance.
To continue testing the evaluation version, you may remove .BuildServer/system directory
(you'll loose information about builds, artifacts and user profiles) and restart the server.

You'll have to reregister users, but all build configurations will remain intact (with clean
history, though).

Hope this helps,
KIR

Unfortunately, that did not work. I also tried the following all of which did not work either. When the TC server is started, the initial screen is the licenses screen asking for a new key.

This is what I tried each time I started/stopped using runAll.sh:
- Moving $HOME/.Buildserver/system
- Moving $HOME/.Buildserver/
- Reinstalling build 1641 but keeping the $HOME/.Buildserver/ dir intact
- Reinstalling build 1641 but changing the teamcity data path by adding
"-Dteamcity.data.path=/opt/TeamCity" to JAVA_OPTS in bin/runAll.sh

So, I still can't use TeamCity right now.

Just to make sure: After the restart you entered the evaluation license obtained from
JetBrains site and this licence doesn't work?

The license bundled with 1641 is obsolete.

That is correct. I can post the license key, if you'd like.

Please do.
Evaluation key should work on fresh installation anyway.
Pretty strange.

Kir,

Never mind. I am juggling a bit too much recently to fully concentrate on the TC implementation. The whole setup needed fixing. I was still using build 1641 rather than the official 1.0 release build and there were many threads of TeamCity running as different users. After installing build 1654 and killing all the lingering pids, I was able to enter the evaluation license and use TC fine. Sorry to waste your time.

No problem, Dave. I'm glad the problem is solved :)
