Cannot start Bamboo - Could not create the Java Virtual Machine

I've just installed Bamboo 6.6.2 and I cannot start it:

 

$ ./bin/start-bamboo.sh

To run Bamboo in the foreground, start the server with start-bamboo.sh -fg

Server startup logs are located in /opt/atlassian-bamboo-6.6.2/logs/catalina.out

Bamboo Server Edition
Version : 6.6.2


If you encounter issues starting or stopping Bamboo Server, please see the Troubleshooting guide at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Installing+and+upgrading+Bamboo

Using CATALINA_BASE: /opt/atlassian-bamboo-6.6.2
Using CATALINA_HOME: /opt/atlassian-bamboo-6.6.2
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/atlassian-bamboo-6.6.2/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/lib/jvm/java-10-oracle
Using CLASSPATH: /opt/atlassian-bamboo-6.6.2/bin/bootstrap.jar:/opt/atlassian-bamboo-6.6.2/bin/tomcat-juli.jar
Tomcat started.

 

but 

$ curl http://localhost:8085/

$ cat logs/catalina.out

Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.

Any pointer how could I fix this?

Replacing the Oracle Java with Open JDK solved the problem.

 

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk

Hi @Gabor Szabo,

The issue reported is not related to replacing Oracle Java with OpenJDK as Atlassian Bamboo runs with both. Instead, the issue was related to the Java version you were running:

$ java --version

java 10.0.2 2018-07-17
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.3 (build 10.0.2+13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.3 (build 10.0.2+13, mixed mode)

When you installed the suggested Java version (1.8) as per described in our https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Supported+platforms this resolved the issue.

Thanks,

Rafael
