Your CloudBees Build Acceleration Cluster Manager (CM) is unable to start.


There could be several possible reasons why your CM will not start. In this specific scenario, you’re seeing the following message appear in your accelerator.log.

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'passwordCrypter' defined in class path resource [passwordCrypterContext.xml]: Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is java.io.FileNotFoundException: conf/passkey (Permission denied)

You’ll run into this error if the Cluster Manager is unable to access the conf/passkey file. This may be caused by a change in ownership or permissions. The file is typically owned by "eacmuser" and has '600' permissions.


To fix the permissions on this file and start the Cluster Manager, you’ll need to run:

sudo chmod 600 /opt/ecloud/i686_Linux/conf/passkey
sudo /etc/init.d/clustermanager start
