ERROR [main]  c.a.s.i.scm.PluginScmClientProvider **************************************************************************

Cause

Cause 1

This is due to git not existing on the PATH

Cause 2

This may happen in a non-compatible OS. Please review the Supported Platforms page to make sure you're using a supported OS.

Cause 3

It could be caused by Forking JVM: error=12. If you see either of the following errors a few lines above, please follow the resolution on that page.

Resolution

Cause 2

For SunOS it was observed this may happen when using Java 8. Using Java 7 instead helped solving the problem.
