I have successfully installed Bamboo CICD server but while starting the server for the first time itself I am getting an error which says "The CATALINA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly This environment variable is needed to run this program" I have already set up JAVA_HOME, JRE_HOME and CATALINA_HOME.

Hi Greeshma,

It is not necessary to set this variable manually, as it is initialized by the startup scripts automatically. Did you follow the installation instruction correctly and run bin\start-bamboo.bat to start the service?

If you do want to set it though it should be the same as the <Bamboo install directory> For eg: C:\Program Files\Bamboo

Do the following.

  1. Stop Bamboo.
  2. Update the variable definition for CATALINA_HOME to the correct value.
  3. Verify that you have completed the steps mentioned on the installation instruction above. Make sure you use JAVA_HOME as the environment variable name (case sensitive).
  4. Start Bamboo.
  5. If Bamboo fails to start still, you may find chore from <Bamboo home directory>/logs/atlassian-bamboo.log.
