I've installed a remote agent as a Windows service and set the service to Log On as an admin user but when I run a job the agent uses the SYSTEM account.
How do you configure the agent to use an admin account?
Thanks for the question. As per this document, (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Running+Bamboo+service+on+Windows+as+the+local+user) you can go to the properties page of the Bamboo remote agent service, move to 'Log On' tab and choose 'This account'. After, fill in the credentials of the admin account and save. Restart the remote agent service and let me know how this goes. Feel free to open a support ticekt (https://support.atlassian.com) if you still experience the same problem and provide screensots indicating the problem, Bamboo server and remote agent log files.
I had the same problem. After reading through the Tanuki service wrapper documentation (and some trial and error) the following worked for me:
1. If you already have a Windows service installed to run the Bamboo remote agent, uninstall it.
2. Edit wrapper.conf as follows:
# Specify the user to run as at installation time (will prompt for password at install time) wrapper.ntservice.account=[fully-qualified-username eg MYDOMAIN\myuser] wrapper.ntservice.password.prompt=true set.USERNAME=[username eg myuser]
3. Install the service using the InstallNTService.bat in the Bamboo agent directory; it will prompt for the password at install time, and will remember this password in the service.
Then, check the 'Agents' administration panel in the Bamboo UI, and you should see that the username is what you are expecting.
Sorry for the inconvenience. The page is removed for the latest Bamboo versions (5.x). Use the old copy of that same page - https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO031/Running+Bamboo+service+on+Windows+as+the+local+user.
I have a Bamboo remote agent on Windows. I have it configured as shown in the documentation linked to above. When I look at the system properties tab on the Administration > Agents > remote.agent.host page it shows the USERNAME=SYSTEM. The agents' temporary directory and user home directory are all correct and using the build users' home directory.
What I see:
In several of the tasks I had for the Windows plan, I added a "set" command which printed the values of the environment.
What I would expect to see is that almost everything from above would be the same except:
How can I get that to happen ? Or is Bamboo just going to use SYSTEM no matter what user the service is logged on as ?
The service is logged on as "builder" for the above setup.
As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
