Child plan never executes after successful run of parent plan


A dependency was set up with Plan B (the child plan) in Plan A. If I run Plan A manually, Plan B never executes. If I run Plan A manually and then manually run Plan B (which requires output from Plan A), however, both successfully complete.

Bamboo version: 6.5.0

Trigger config: 

    Plan A: none (plan started manually)
    Plan B: none

Dependency blocking settings:

    Plan A: none 
               (under Dependencies on the same page, Plan B is listed as the child)

    Plan B: none
               (under Parent Plans on the same page, Plan A is listed as the parent)

What repository type used in both Plan?

Access to a repository is needed only in Plan A--the tasks are run under a local agent. The plan pulls from a Bitbucket repo and compiles the code.

Plan B runs under a dedicated remote agent, using a script that pulls the compiled code down from the machine that ran Plan A (via scp). 

I can run Plan A manually, and the source is pulled and compiled. I can then run Plan B and the remote agent successfully fetches the binaries down to it's location.

If the debug logging "com.atlassian.bamboo.event" is enabled at Administration > System > Log settings , does it show the following debug message in atlassian-bamboo.log

2018-06-21 17:25:10,690 DEBUG [10-BAM::PlanExec:pool-16-thread-2] [EventLoggingThreadPoolExecutor] About to run Future for com.atlassian.bamboo.v2.trigger.DependentBuildDetectionAction for CHAIN:<projectKey>-<planB>

Is there any error in the log after Plan A finish running?

The child build is running now--I can't give you an explanation as to why, but I can initiate the parent plan either manually or by scheduling it, and both plans do run. Thanks for your help on that.

Having a separate issue now with "Host key verification failed" when attempting to scp files from the Bamboo server to the remote agent machine. The remote agent is running under the same linux account for which the keys were generated and shared with the Bamboo server. From a terminal on the remote agent machine and logged in as that user, I can execute the same command line as the remote agent task and it succeeds. Do I (somehow) have to associate that username with the remote agent task?

I'll open this up under a separate thread--thanks for your help.
