As noted in the Requirements documentation, Java 17 is required to start the server.

Based on the error message, you have Java 11 installed.

Hey there.

java.lang.IllegalStateException: failed to obtain node locks, tried [D:\Users\2014283\SonarQube\sonarqube-10.0.0.68432\sonarqube-10.0.0.68432\data\es8]; maybe these locations are not writable or multiple nodes were started on the same data path?

It seems you either have tried to start multiple SonarQube instances against the same database, or something has corrupted your data/es8 folder (you can try deleting it and restarting).

If you have an issue around scanning, please open a new thread.

Hello,

The SonarScanner did not complete successfully

Configured the JDK 11, because it is SonarQube 8.9 LTS version.

Where am I getting wrong, please help me to reach out of this.

Thanks
