Bamboo remote agent : AIX

does anyone run Bamboo remote agents in AIX? do you have any pointers on setting it up? mostly I am wondering if IBM JDK 1.6 might give us problems or is it something else.

I successfully ran Bamboo agent on IBM i (on Power) with IBM JDK in PASE/AIX environment a couple of years ago. No significant issues. Don't have any projects that need that now, so it is not active anymore.


We are running into the following exception when attempting to start the agent with IBM's JDK on AIX. Do you recall what version of Bamboo you were on when you had the agent running on AIX?

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'processService' defined in class path resource [applicationContextCommon.xml]: Instantiation of bean failed; nested exception is java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: java/util/concurrent/TimeUnit.HOURS

This looks like a problem with Java 1.5 - make sure you are indeed running it on 1.6 .

Thanks Przemek - we'll look into that

It was bamboo 2.1.1 using JAVA 1.5. I think we continued to run it up to bamboo 2.5.

Thanks Guys for all your input - we have now confirmed that it was a JDK version problem. We are now successfully runing the agent on AIX using IBM's JDK 6...

Officially AIX and the IBM JDK is unsupported. We haven't tested on this combination before so it may or may not work - best give it a go and report back here :)

Hi @JamesA  I was able to install the remote agent. But it stops after each build and I am unable to restart using script. I am using version 5.13.1. Please help me .
