We are using Bamboo 6.3.0 on Windows 2012. Everything was working fine with this install until recently when the service failed to start on a system reboot. Nothing with the Bamboo or Java configuration has changed.
The Bamboo log looks normal until it gets to the system information box, at which point it records the warning below:
2019-01-15 19:38:52,075 ERROR [setupDefaultGeneralBackgroundThread] [XmlWebApplicationContext] Exception encountered during context initialization - cancelling refresh attempt: org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'systemInfoFactory' defined in class path
After throwing this warning the service begins shutting down. We've double checked the ownership and confirmed that the system account running the Bamboo service has full read/write access to the Bamboo home directory. What else should we check to resolve this?

This would be default content for a Bamboo 6.7.2 instance:

That folder had two files, "administration" which is 0KB and "administration - copy" that is 6KB. I backed up the two files, and renamed the original to .old and then renamed the copy to just administration. The XML file looks correct.
I started the service, but the Bamboo site is still unavailable. Unlike previously, the service does at least stay running. What would you suggest we check next?
