Agent - Updated Linux user's PATH, agent doesn't see it

I recently updated the linux user's (that runs the bamboo agent) PATH and when I try to run a build the agent fails to locate any executable in the new PATH, but when I run the process manually on the agent server (as the linux user that runs the bamboo agent), it works just fine.

Do I need to restart the agent since I updated the PATH?

Bouncing the agent resolved the issue.

I also tried to add an executable to the Agent via the Admin console and that didn't help either.

Since changing the PATH environment variable is related to changing a shell configuration file you need to restart the process in order to pick up the change.

Hi Ed, 

Did you try to logout and login again from linux ?

P.S.: make sure when you login again the new path will be set up as expected.
