Firing a perl script to remote agent Linux

Bamboo 4.3.2: I wrote a perl script for my builds. I use the "Script" task and execute the file to a Windows remote agent and it says "running command line: \nbuild_tools\process_requests.pl" and off it goes! VICTORY! I point the same plan to a Linux server and it says: "running command line:

/bin/sh
build_tools/process_requests.pl" and it runs my perl as a shell and crashes on a syntax error. I have the shebang (#!/usr/bin/perl) at the top of the perl script. I've tried to change my command to /usr/bin/perl build_tools/process_requests.pl, etc. Any hints?

I switched from a "file" to "inline" script and simply ran /usr/bin/perl build_tools/process_requests.pl

It isn't perfect, but it is functional.

Otherwise you'd have to put the script on the linux box and execute it over there.

You might try using the "command" task. Define a capability (executable) for the linux box of "linux perl" configuring the location of the perl exe in the capability. Then pass the script path and name as an argument to the command. I've run other linux commands this way and gotten good results.
