Cannot open file from bamboo but works on the server


I'm making a build plan that consists so far of a build plan that launches a jmeter test. But i encounter a problem where the command works when i test it directly on the server, but it doesn't work when i test from bamboo. 

It says that it cannot open a certain file, that file is on another server. Once again if i execute the same command int the server's cmd it works...

The command:

 C:/Jmeter/apache-jmeter-3.3/bin/jmeter.bat -J -n -t H:/test/restTest.jmx -l  C:/UserTemp/result.jtl

On Bamboo this command outputs:

 Could not open H:/test/restTest.jmx


And if i try directly on the server the test passes with an OK status.


I tried stopping bamboo and starting it with "Run As Administrator" but i got the same result could no open.


On the other server i've set that file to full control for everyone and same result from bamboo.


Am i missing something?

Hi Some Guy,

I'm assuming the H: is a mapped network drive. It looks like this drive is not available for the user you're using to start Bamboo or the remote agent.

Have you tried adding a script task right before this task to mount the H: drive during the build execution? It should be something like this:

net use H: \\<SERVER NAME>\<share name>


This worked. Thanks!


I needed a if exist aswell or the second run will trigger an error.
