I am in the process of planning to move my on-prem octopus server into AWS and just had a couple of questions.
I’m going to be doing this in a phased approached and where the first phase is to move the physical on prem SQL database into a AWS SQL RDS. After then, update the connection strings in my current octopus server.
The question I had is while building the automated scripts to do this if as a test, I backup the database restore it to RDS and create a new instance of Octopus Server will that in any way mess up my current production environment? I will not be deploying from there or anything like that I just want to make sure that everything works how it should before doing that live in production.
I just want to confirm that by pointing a new instance of octopus to a copy of the production database won’t break our current setup.
