This error is very generic and doesn't give us a specific cause for it.  However usually this error can happen when bamboo is unable to connect to the database being used, or the database is not configured correctly.

Are you following the Bamboo installation guide in order to complete this installation?   


I would also be interested to learn more about the database type/version you are using and if you are closely following the steps in Connecting Bamboo to an external database for this purpose.  We might need to take a closer look at all the bamboo logs to better understand this problem, but to start I would want to know more about your OS, JAVA version, database type being used in this setup.
