Bamboo Custom Installation - Set Up Database fails


Bamboo set up with Custom Installation is keep failing while setting up data base.

I have created a DB in SQL server and provided the correct JDBC Connection url too.

Tables got created successfully in the DB but Bamboo set up wizard comes back to the same screen again and when I click on Continue button I can just see that 

"Please wait while Bamboo sets up your database" and spinner goes on and doesn't come back at all.

I have uninstalled  bamboo, deleted the bamboo-home folder completely and re installed Bamboo several times, but no luck, getting stuck with the same problem of setting up DB.

Any help would be much much appreciated please.

Hi Maitri,


I'd take a look at the atlassian-bamboo.log file which you'll find in the <BambooHome>/logs directory, this should give you a clue as to what's going on.

Hi Christian,

Thanks for your reply.

I have fixed the issue yesterday itself, I will share the solution here just in case if anyone else is experiencing the similar issue.

The issue was with External Database set up, there were two things that I have missed while setting up the DB

Configure the database to use case-sensitive collation — to make the SQL Server database respect case differences in the data it stores (which is required for Bamboo), ensure that you configure it using a case-sensitive collation option such as 'Latin1_General_CS_AS'. To access this feature in SQL Server Management Studio, right-click on the database name, select Properties from the resulting menu, then select the Options page. 

Configure the database to use the correct isolation level— Ensure that the new database was set to use Read Committed with Row Versioning as its isolation level. You can apply the new isolation by executing the following query:

ALTER DATABASE <database name>


So I have deleted the DB and created it again and performed the above mentioned two steps, that is it, rest worked as expected.
