Bamboo is running as a Windows service without using a local Admin account.


Stop Bamboo service and follow this document to run Bamboo service using a local Admin account.


Some helpful troubleshooting steps are:

  • Trying to run the same Grails task from command line (without using Bamboo), from the current working directory of the failing plan using the same user account that runs Bamboo instance.
  • Trying to run the same Grails commands from a Bamboo inline Script task using the absolute path for the Grails executable.
  • Checking if a remote agent is being used for running the plan. If yes, making sure that the remote agent is capable of running that plan and that the Grails executable exists on the machine where the remote agent is running.
