java.lang.ClassCastException when installing Confluence unattended



I would like to install Confluence in unattended mode.


Using the response.varfile which have been created during an normal installation shows an error during launching confluence:


Launching Confluence ...

Finishing installation ...


The response.varfile is

#install4j response file for Confluence 6.2.2


I start the unattenden installion with this command:

cd /root

./atlassian-confluence-6.2.2-x64.bin -q -varfile response.varfile


Does anyone know a solution for this?
