Bamboo Git Checkout - Operation Not Permitted




We are getting following error for the bamboo plans intermittently. Could you please help resolve the issue? We have the bamboo server on Ubuntu with elastic agents.

we have the force checkout enabled and still see the issue.

Caused by: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: Unable to clean source directory '/home/bamboo/bamboo-agent-home/xml-data/build-dir/TEST-SC' /home/bamboo/bamboo-agent-home/xml-data/build-dir/TEST-SC/test Operation not permitted

we see one of the folder is getting root access and its not able to be deleted from the agent during the build and its throwing an error "Operation not permitted"

I hope the problem was related to the git and file/dir permissions.
