Merging two 2.6 instances into one

Currently we have two instances of Octopus v2.6 server, is it possible to restore the backup of one instance to the other so they can be merged into one?

i.e. Take a backup of instance 1, restore it into existing instance 2.

Is this a supported process?

(we know the alternative is to do export and import using Octo.exe, but this won’t migrate existing environments, shared libraries, etc.)

Hi Roger,

Thanks for getting in touch!

Unfortunately in 2.6 this is not supported, if you restore a backup it will remove all existing data in the database.

We have improved this in 3.0, so that you can export one instance and restore it to another instance and sync the servers that way.

Sorry for the bad news, but hope that helps!

Warm regards,
