Bamboo SCP Task failing to upload to Windows Server

My Bamboo is configured on Linux Server and I am trying to upload files(Artifacts) to Windows server using Bamboo's inbuilt task "SCP Task". This is task is configured in deployment project which will run after a successful build.

In SCP Task, I have correctly entered the Host IP Address, Password and Remote path.

The default port is connecting to is 22. I have also opened the port 22 on windows server as TCP and currently allowing all connection.

When I run my deployment the following error is thrown "Server closed connection during identification exchange".

Failed to connect to host
net.schmizz.sshj.transport.TransportException: Server closed connection during identification exchange

 Any Suggestions? Am I missing something?

Hi Gagan,

  • What version of Bamboo are you using?
  • What path are you using and does it start with \?
  • What ssh server are you running on Windows?
  • Do you have a firewall and if so does disabling it help?
  • Do you see any logs on the Windows side?

I would check the logs on the Windows side and enable debugging if possible.  In addition, enable debug logging in Bamboo: = DEBUG to Bamboo log4j 

Reproduce the issue and post and relevant logs here.
