Need help setting up a secondary "slave" bamboo build server


Currently my company has a bamboo build server setup on a 2013 Mac Pro to build Unity mobile game titles for iOS and Android. What I'd like to do is make a secondary "slave" build server on a Windows based PC so that the main mac build server focuses on iOS builds and the slave one can focus on android builds. How would I go about doing this? I'm sure there is documentation on the site somewhere, but I just am not sure what I should be looking for. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

With a "slave" I suppose you mean a build agent and not a full Bamboo application server?

Normally you have only 1 Bamboo application with several agents. The agents can be local or remote. Local agents run on the same server as Bamboo while remote agents run on another machine.

You can install as many "remote agents" as your Bamboo license allows you to. The operating system of the bamboo agent does not matter.
Here is the documentation about installing remote agents: Bamboo remote agent installation guide

In order to define which builds will run on your Mac and which ones on your Windows agent you can use build capabilities.

Yes! Remote agents, that's what I was trying to say. This is the info I'm looking for. Thank you so much :)
