Facing "killed gitlab-runner register" issues when setting up group runner

I followed the Manual Installation instructions from here: https://docs.gitlab.com/runner/install/osx.html#manual-installation-official

$ sudo curl --output /usr/local/bin/gitlab-runner https://gitlab-runner-downloads.s3.amazonaws.com/latest/binaries/gitlab-runner-darwin-amd64
$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/gitlab-runner

Then i tried to follow the MacOS instructions from here: https://docs.gitlab.com/runner/register/index.html#macos

$ gitlab-runner register
[1]    21540 killed     gitlab-runner register

$ gitlab-runner install
[1]    21391 killed     gitlab-runner install

$ gitlab-runner --version
[1]    21548 killed     gitlab-runner --version

What’s going on?


which macOS version are you on? The runner itself might allocate resources the OS does not allow, e.g. the number of open files or memory. Is there anything specific in the system’s log for these killed items?
