I have a bamboo server running on Windows 7. I also have a Virtual Box instance of Ubuntu 12.04 where I would like to automatically start an agent on startup (without logging in). What is the best way of doing this?
Note that if I login as build_meister and start the agent, it works perfectly.
I tried a Startup Applications program with automatic login turned on for user build_meister. The agent is detected by the bamboo server, but dies when it tries to create a disk store (probably because it does not have access to where it wants to create it?)
One thing missing is that I need to automatically enter the password. But your suggestion led me to this:
echo -e "<password>\n" | sudo -S -u build_meister "/usr/local/bin/start_agent.sh"
(note the \n after the password)
... and in /usr/local/bin/start_agent.sh
java -jar /usr/local/bin/atlassian-bamboo-agent-installer-5.5.1.jar http://<ipaddress:port>/agentServer/
Thanks for the idea,
