Bamboo SCP task failing with "scp: Failed to open file '/*.*'"

Bamboo server v. 6.7.2 build 60706 running on a Windows 7 Pro machine

I've got a plan that checks out a simple README.txt file from git (which works flawlessly).

All I want to do is then copy that file into a folder on a server.  Simple.

Target server is a Windows Server 2012 R2


I have installed SolarWinds SCP server on that box, and I can have verified that I can use the following putty command to list the directory contents on the target from the bamboo server

pscp -l [user] -pw [password]-sftp -ls vdcwwebsrvstg01:/

Note that if I force pscp to use scp, I get the following error:


The Bamboo SCP task however consistently fails with the following error when trying to upload README.txt

"scp: Failed to open file '/*.*'"

This happens regardless of how I set the remote path (which I believe should be set to "/*.*"

I've attached the config for the Bamboo SCP task

Can anyone give me any guidance.


Note: The target server is running SolarWinds SFTP/SCP v1.0.4.9 server, with the default configuration.

For Remote Path, there is no need to add "*.*" at the end. Try using "/" only.
