Bamboo Artifacts Missing - Failure to Deserialise

Since upgrading to from bamboo 4.4.2 to  5.8.1 builds sometimes fail to transfer artifacts from remote agent to bamboo server.  One out of 20 builds or so seems to exhibit the problem and I see the errors  in server/agents logs and worked with Atlassian support to change http.socket.timeout and client.timeout with not much impact.

anyone got a clue how to dig deeper and figure out a) what's going on?  b) how to fix it?

Hi @Peter Kahn, my team just encountered this issue with a build archive yesterday. Have you found a solution? Did you just keep building?


I suggest you migrate to jenkins. We spent 4 months working with atlassian getting nowhere. They can't support bamboo. Switching to jenkins with the jenkins job builder helped us migrate in about a month. Jenkins has a community of 100k installations and any problem or question we had had an easily found answer.

Thanks for getting back to me, Peter. I appreciate the recommendation.
