The remote agent will try to connect to Bamboo server according to the setting "" in the file <bamboo-server-home>/bamboo.cfg.xml

From the above error, try the following command in the machine hosting remote agent:

telnet serverhost 54663

If it does not return the following example message, it means that machine hosting remote agent does not have network connection to the Bamboo server:

Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
          TcpNoDelayEnabledSizePrefixDisabled CacheSize
                                                         ProviderName  ActiveMQStackTraceEnabledPlatformDetails KJVM: 1.8.0_73, 25.73-b02, Oracle Corporation, OS: Mac OS X, 10.12.6, x86_64
                                                            MaxFrameSize???MaxInactivityDuration?? MaxInactivityDurationInitalDelay'ProviderVersion 5.14.5
Connection closed by foreign host.

Thanks for quick reply. It does return message as you listed. But finally it shows connection lost. And I also tried the command on other work well agent, it shows the same return.

Connection to host lost.

During the remote agent startup, does it show the following example log message where it validate the URL?

2018-12-10 16:26:42,599 INFO [AgentRunnerThread] [BambooActiveMQConnectionFactory] Setting broker URL to 'failover:(tcp://serverhostname:54663?wireFormat.maxInactivityDuration=300000)?maxReconnectAttempts=10&initialReconnectDelay=15000'
2018-12-10 16:26:42,601 INFO [AgentRunnerThread] [BambooActiveMQConnectionFactory] Broker URI: tcp://serverhostname:54663?wireFormat.maxInactivityDuration=300000 is valid.

 Is other remote agent that works well able to be restarted without problem?

Thank you. I have solved it. The cause is firewall limitation. Just ask IT to open it.
