Remote agent not accessing mounted drive


I am running into a error with a job running on a bamboo remote agent not having access to a mounted drive on Windows Server 2008, R2.

The setup is: User Atlassian(which is an admin) has mounted a drive Z:. There are tools on this mounted drive needed by our build system; one of them is a tool that I have defined as a "command" in the bamboo agent.

When a build is kicked off on this agent, the build fails because "The System cannot find the path specified".

I attached a local disk and made it a clone of the mounted drive, changed the command to be defined from the local disk and everything runs fine.

The agent is running as a service under the user Atlassian [local user]. When I installed the agent as a service, I ran the java command from a command prompt that was opened with "Run as administrator". Will that make a difference?

How can I get the bamboo jobs to be able to access a mounted drive?

I had to add a conditional 'net use' command to my build script and that seemed to work ok.
