Does Bamboo sometimes remove current working directory?

marjotim September 14, 2023

Sometimes, seemingly randomly, running a build in Bamboo fails.
Build jobs/stages are run inside docker, failure seems to be coming randomly, regardless of agent (most of the time it succeeds in all agents, sometimes fails in any/some agents that have built it successfully before and do build successfully after).

Log snippet from failing build:

The first error ("fatal: unable to read current working directory") comes from running git tag.
As said, this seems to occur randomly, regardless of the agent that runs this job. It's as if current working directory gets removed (or removed and re-created - I'm in Ubuntu).

Most of the time it goes without problems, log snippet from a successful build:

Hello @marjotim 

The issues you're encountering with Bamboo builds failing intermittently due to permission errors and "unable to read current working directory" problems can stem from several potential causes. Here are some steps to diagnose and possibly resolve these issues.

1. Permissions and Ownership Issues

The errors like /home/bamboo/bamboo-agent-home/xml-data/build-dir/EXAMPLE-PROJECT21-JOB6/.git: Permission denied suggest there might be issues with permissions or ownership of the directories where Bamboo tries to perform operations. This can happen if the Bamboo agent processes are not consistently running as the same user or if external scripts change ownership of the files.

Fix:

  • Ensure that the user running the Bamboo agent has consistent and appropriate permissions to access and modify the directories and files within /home/bamboo/bamboo-agent-home/xml-data/build-dir/.

 

Since your builds are running inside Docker containers, it's possible that inconsistencies or issues with Docker volumes or mounts are causing these problems. Docker might not be mounting volumes consistently, or the Docker image might not have the right environment setup.

  • Check the Docker configurations for volume mounts to ensure they are set up consistently across different agents and builds.
  • Consider using Docker's --user option to set the UID and GID that matches the host, to avoid permissions issues with mounted volumes.

Race Conditions and Directory Structure Changes

Given that it occurs randomly and seemingly regardless of the agent that runs the job, it could be a race condition, where multiple processes are trying to access or modify the working directory at the same time. This can sometimes lead to unpredictable results, like the directory seeming to disappear temporarily.

It could be Antivirus which may lock some of the files while scanning them and prevent Bamboo from updating/refreshing the cache. Hence Disable the continuous monitoring and scans for the Bamboo directories. Refer : https://confluence.atlassian.com/bamkb/frequent-git-operations-failing-due-to-corrupted-git-cache-on-windows-1101930410.html 

Let me know if this helps!

Thanks, the issue was actually resolved through a support request last October - I had completely forgot I had also posted a question. (Root cause was directory permission that had gone wrong when cloning Bamboo agent).
