Bamboo Job fails: 'cmd' is not recognized as an internal or external command

We have a bamboo build which has 4 tasks running on a windows server 2016 VM.


Each task has cd command to go to repository and then mvn compile .......command

Once the maven compilation is done, we see this error on all the four tasks

All my PATH variables in window server are correctly (JAVA_HOME,MAVEN_HOME) and also "C:\Windows\system32" and "C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe"

To avoid confusion, i appended path variables of user admin to system PATH and deleted the user path.


Nothing seem to work, i have spent enough time debugging and ran out of options now. 


Any help is highly appreciated.

I figured out why that cmd error is coming .

I logged into the windows VM which is run by the bamboo build .

In the services, identity the agent that is being installed .

Right click on Agent and then do agent properties and in Log On tab, I changed the user type from local system account to the admin account that i am logged in VM.

Now all path variables are respected and maven commands now work without path.


So the user Log On type and VM login type should match

I am facing issue :

'mvn' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
error 17-Sep-2019 18:09:10 operable program or batch file.

 When tried the mvn verify on cmd it works , where as from bamboo it doesnt.please help

Is the build run by local or remote agent?
