SSH task Hanging or Disconnecting before completion

I have an SSH task I use after Bamboo deploys Maven .war onto my server, I have used many variations of the following:

sudo nohup service jboss stop &
echo "SLEEPING for 5 seconds during Shutdown of Jboss"
sleep 5
sudo rm -f /usr/share/jboss-as/standalone/deployments/ROOT.war.deployed /usr/share/jboss-as/standalone/deployments/ROOT.war
sudo mv /home/bamboo/ROOT.war /usr/share/jboss-as/standalone/deployments/
sudo nohup service jboss start &
echo "*****SLEEP while JBoss starts: 75 seconds******"
sleep 75
sudo mv /home/bamboo/*.war ../
cd ../

I have also tried exit = 0,

Everything seems to work okay all the way up to starting the server.

Either does not start jboss server and disconnects succesfully or starts the server and does not disconnect?

Any suggestions about how to make the SSH task disconnect after waiting for Jboss to start?

Thank you for your time and diligence.

I have found a resolution..

I tested that both having a SSH task run a script or putting it in the Script task will not hang bamboo.

/sbin/service jboss restart > /tmp/stderrlogdump 2>&1 &

Apparently dumping stderr releases the terminal from waiting for the process and/or its children to finish.

Thumbs UP!

I have a similar problem.

The SSH task never "completes" and just hangs. So my next tasks are never executed.
Were you able to fix your problem?

Sorry friend, I have no good news. I'll keep experimenting, please let me know if you find a solution as well.
