Hi durgabhavani,

We are happy to hear you're evaluating Bamboo!

Regarding your issue, Is your environment meeting the requirements listed in the supported platforms documentation? Also, are you sure that the user you're using to start Bamboo is the owner of the bamboo-home and installation directories? 

Have you checked the bamboo-home/logs/atlassian-bamboo.log file to see if there are details about the error there? Please, if you find any [FATAL] error, paste the details here so we can better understand why your instance is failing to start.
