Hi @mahesh sathe,

Bamboo 6.9.2 is not compatible with Java 11, please point you JAVA_HOME environment variable to a valid JDK 1.8 installation and try to start Bamboo again.

Please remember that if the path for the JDK installation contains spaces, you'll need to use the shortened pathname, for example:

Progra~1 = 'Program Files' 

For more details, please take a look at the following documentation:
