ARM Bamboo Agent

Jonathan Vaughan May 4, 2021

We have a requirement to run an ARM Agent, so we are using Amazon Linux 2 ARM.


However when we run


"sudo /vzc/bamboo/build-agent-home/bin/ stop"


We get the following error:




The same is true when we run start.


I read a comment somewhere that it is possible to get Bamboo Agents to run on ARM machines, but as of yet, I have been unable to do it. Any suggestions?

Hi Jonathan,

ARM is not officially a supported platform but agents should work on ARM if you run the agent manually without the wrapper as the wrapper itself is not compatible with ARM.

To run the remote agent without the wrapper, you can execute the remote agent jar directly. The agent jar is available from Bamboo's agent installation page for download. Follow the steps below to run it:

  1. Browse to: http://<host>:8085/admin/agent/addRemoteAgent.action
  2. Click the the direct agent JAR is available at bamboo-agent-6.10.4.jar link and save the agent jar.
  3. Start the agent with or without token key by running the below command in the agent itself:
    java -jar bamboo-agent-6.10.4.jar http://<host>:8085/agentServer/ <tokenKey>

As part of our setup process we both stop and start the service. via the jar can I pass commands that will stop as well as start?

As when I run:
java -Dbamboo.home=/vzc/bamboo/build-agent-home -jar atlassian-bamboo-agent-installer-6.10.4.jar stop


I get the same error as when I went through the wrapper:
