Rational Build Forge and Windows Server 2016

bob mccormack (111) | asked Sep 05 '19, 10:06 p.m.

 Let me relate what I have done and what I observing

  • I have a windows Server 2016
  • I have installed Rational Build Forge at and applied fix pack 11
  • I have started Build Forge in the foreground
  • I do have Default to the Java Master Job Controller field set to No
  • From a PowerShell I issue the command /.bfengine -p  this gives this message 
PS C:\Program Files (x86)\ibm\Build Forge> 9/5/2019 3:13:28 AM: CRRBF0636I: 6824: Build Forge: The Build Forge engine is already running
When I logon via the web, Build Forge exhibits normal behaviour except
when I try to run projects, they remain in a NOT STARTED status, and I observe this from the foreground window on the server

Sep 05, 2019 3:14:08 AM create
INFO: build stage:Queued
Sep 05, 2019 3:14:15 AM update
INFO: build stage:

INFO: build stage:
Sep 05, 2019 3:14:16 AM update
INFO: build stage:

   n.b. I would have expected another another update message and the job to be running

Question 1. is my approach to starting Build Forge under Windows Server 2016  to have a perl engine running  correct?

Question 2. is there some as yet unknown setting stopping the project from executing?

Question 3. Currently the Jazz Site has Build Forge at, so we installed that and then
                    went to IBM's site and downloaded Fix Pack 11 and applied that. Is this a compatible
                    mix. Is there any guidance on this?
