Bamboo Job Exit with Error cmd' is not recognized as an internal or external command

Hi ,

I have setup a remote bamboo agent to run in a windows environment where The server runs in a Linux environment.

Here i have setup a plan to build a multi module maven project. and that plan runs using that remote agent.

I have split the build process by having few tasks which will execute one after another to build speprate modules.

But after successfully executing the 1st Task the build get failed with a Error message

'cmd' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Failing task since return code was 1 while expected 0

any tips to find a solution for this issue is highly appriciated.

cheers,

Charith

On your remote agent, make sure that directory with cmd.exe is in the PATH variable by setting it for the user used to run the agent.

Hi,

Thanks for the answer. I accually tried adding this to PATH using ENV variable settings but no luck. Then i re do it in the place where we can define ENV variables in Bamboo dashbord. Then it worked when the agent is running as a normal process. But when i install it as a service i faced the issue again.

cheers,

I solved this issue on my Windows build agent. This has to do with the environment variables set for the user that runs bamboo. Log in as that user and verify that %SystemRoot%\system32 is included in your Path variable for that user.
