Cannot Start Machine Agent in a Free SAAS Trial Environment


Cannot Start Machine Agent in a Free SAAS Trial Environment

Hi there,


I installed the MachineAgent- on my MAC Mojave 10.14.3.


My Java env:

java version "11.0.1" 2018-10-16 LTS

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.1+13-LTS)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.1+13-LTS, mixed mode)


I am currently working on a free SaaS trail version.


When trying to start the agent I am getting the following error:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/annotation/PreDestroy

        at com.appdynamics.voltron.AppLifecycleModule.<clinit>(

        at com.appdynamics.voltron.FrameworkBootstrap.start(

        at com.appdynamics.voltron.FrameworkApplication.start(

        at com.appdynamics.agent.sim.Main.startSafe(

        at com.appdynamics.agent.sim.bootstrap.Bootstrap.main(

        at java.base/jdk.internal.loader.ClassLoaders$AppClassLoader.loadClass(

        at java.base/java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(

        ... 6 more


What am I doing wrong here?


Thanks in advance

Au niveau du bin  utiliser cette commande pour démarrer l'agent : cscript bin\machine-agent.vbs


Translation provided by Google: "At bin level use this command to start the agent"
