How to fix Bamboo agents with the same unique ID
Platform notice: Server and Data Center only. This article only applies to Atlassian products on the server and data center platforms.
Sometimes the remote agents may have the same unique ID which may cause conflict with agent authentication.
You will find two or more agents with the same unique ID on the Agent authentication page.
There are two common causes for this issue to happen:
- Two remote agents using the same <remote-agent-home> folder or a copy of it.
- Two remote agents with the same <remote-agent-home>/bamboo-agent.cfg.xml file
- Delete <remote-agent-home>/bamboo-agent.cfg.xml file, restart the remote agent, and approve it again on the Agent authentication page.
