Hi @sangeetha

I would check a few things first:

  1. Do you have a native GIT installation in this remote agent? If not Bamboo may be using JGIT which is more error-prone.
  2. The OS on this agent does not allow running scripts at the /tmp directory.
  3. The git cache is corrupted.

1 -
 Will require installing git and adding it as a capability.

2 -
 Will involve editing the agent configuration so it has a different temp directory that can run scripts.
For this you need:

  1. Stop the agent
  2. Edit the <Bamboo_Agent_Home>/conf/wrapper.conf to add an additional java parameter like the following line:
    ⚠️ In case the number 3 is used you will need to change it to a different number available.
  3. Start the agent again

3 - Just a removing the folder caches folder will force the agent to create a new one

  1. Stop the agent
  2. Remove the bambooagentlinuxpath/bamboo_home/xml-data/build-dir/_git-repositories-cache folder
  3. Start the agent


I hope that helps you to move forward.

Thanks Daniel. Removing the cache folder as mentioned inn step 3 worked
