Issue with running bamboo shell task in docker


When I run job with task in docker it fails with 

8 time="2019-07-02T11:28:18Z" level=fatal msg="Error: Path not specified"
02-Jul-2019 11:28:18 Exit code: 1, output: STDOUT: Beginning to execute external process for build 'kubo - helm - kubo-deployment-dev #9 (KUBO-HELM-KUB-9)'\n ... running command line: \n/usr/local/bin/docker cp /var/opt/bamboo/atlassian-bamboo-6.8.3/temp/initialiseDockerContainer.sh1625454798126877638.tmp 7d9f46fd-f667-4618-9501-92d8256e89da1474566:/tmp/\n ... in: /var/opt/bamboo-home/xml-data/build-dir/KUBO-HELM-KUB\nSTDERR: time="2019-07-02T11:28:18Z" level=fatal msg="Error: Path not specified"

There is no /var/opt/bamboo/atlassian-bamboo-6.8.3/temp/initialiseDockerContainer.sh1625454798126877638.tmp file, so I am not sure why it is try to copy it to container.

Hi @ScottHough

I created a build with docker runner to check those messages. I got a message pretty similar to yours:

command 03-Jul-2019 15:52:50 Beginning to execute external process for build 'Docker runner - Ubuntu test - Default Job #1 (DR-UT-JOB1-1)'
... running command line:
/usr/local/bin/docker cp /Users/dsantos/atlassian/bamboo/6.8.1/install/temp/initialiseDockerContainer.sh1545199765671114425.tmp 58fdafe6-6355-4546-978d-91dd4db030b412910596:/tmp/
... in: /Users/dsantos/atlassian/bamboo/6.8.1/home/xml-data/build-dir/DR-UT-JOB1

The file<HASH>.tmp is created by Bamboo and deployed to the container as part of the initialization process. It is possible that the Bamboo server was not able to create this file for some reason or even that this file was deleted right after the issue to deploy it.

I have some questions that I believe will help us to investigate this further:

  1. I see this happened in KUBO-HELM-KUB-9. Is it correct to assume that prior builds were running as expected with docker runner?
  2. Were you trying to rerun a build when this problem happened?
  3. Are you able to reproduce the issue?
  4. Is this happening with other builds/plans using the same docker image?
  5. Have you checked if the permissions for the folder /var/opt/bamboo/atlassian-bamboo-6.8.3/temp/ were recently changed or even if your Bamboo server is running with a different user?

I'll wait for the insights you have when checking those questions.

1.  Every builds running with docker agent failed with this error.

2. Yes. It failed again.

3. Yes.

4. yes

5. permissions wasn't changed.

I have deployed bamboo server on ubuntu 14.04 ... so docker 

██docker -v
Docker version 1.6.2, build 7c8fca2

I am not sure what is the root cause. I have deployed one more vm, with ubuntu 18.04 and added this vm as remote agent with docker support. Now it works.

I don't have much time to investigate this further  ...

Hi @ScottHough

No problem man! Thank you very much for taking the time to follow up on my last message I appreciate that.

Let's leave this one to investigate in case it happens again or with another user.
Have a good one!
