Bamboo only works after reboot, can't find /tmp file. How do I know which folder it is trying to look for?

For some weird reason, after a couple of successful deployments, bamboo starts crashing, with the error "bash.exe warning could not find tmp please create". I don't know what it's trying to do, but if we restart the WHOLE server, it works again, browsing online it pointed me to the TEMP folder and how to configure it, but that works for a couple of times after reboot, then nothing. Is there something I can do to get GIT to stop breaking?

What do you mean by "starts crashing"? Do you mean the agent or the server? When does it crash?

The build starts crashing for no reason. The issue is that the git repository doesn't get checked out. Here are the logs.

The plan crashes and just keeps getting thrown into a look of failure/retries.

The only way to stop it from happening is to uncheck the submodule option on the repository, but we need it enabled for this particular plan.

After the error happens, the plan gets into this corrupted state and only recovers when the server is restarted.

I will try that next time it gets into this state.

Does it work if you execute these commands from the command line?

The commands to fetch init checkout and submodule update all work from the command line in this state.

I am not getting this exception - /libexec/git-core/git-sh-setup: line 270: cd: .git:

On our build system, Msysgit and Bamboo seem to be confused by the environment variables moving around because of Remote Desktop. Even after disabling some RDP features (based on, we still get errors until we restart Bamboo.

We're also experiencing this issues. Were you able to find a solution?
