Remote Agent Startup Issue Java version

Hello,

I ran into a startup issue with the bamboo remote agent. 

The supported platforms article means that only java 1.8 is supported.  The log of the agent means:

INFO | jvm 4 | 2017/10/09 14:46:01 | Registry key 'Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\CurrentVersion'
INFO | jvm 4 | 2017/10/09 14:46:01 | has value '1.8', but '1.6' is required.

After changing the registry key manually to 1.6 (it is also installed) I get the following messages:

bamboo 6.2.1

java 8u114

Does anyone know what I did wrong?

Hi Patrick,

Did you install the JDK?:

For Bamboo server, it is not enough to have just the JRE. Please ensure that you have the full JDK.

You can download the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) from the Oracle website.

Once you install the JDK you'll need to set the JAVA_HOME:

Once the JDK is installed, you will need to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable, pointing to the root directory of the JDK. Some JDK installers set this automatically (check by typing 'echo %JAVA_HOME%' in a command prompt, or 'echo $JAVA_HOME' in a shell). You need to do this before installing Bamboo, as Bamboo will automatically configure JDK capabilities based on the system environment variables on your machine.

Let me know if that is all set and we'll go from there.

Cheers,

Branden

Hi Branden,

I have installed the jdk 1.8.0_144 (x64).

The environment variable JAVA_HOME points to C;\Program Files\Java\jre_1.8.0_144

Thanks,

Patrick
