My bamboo remote agent is installed as a service on a Windows 7 computer. The service runs as a user (not local administrator). I find that I must run the service as user since the GCC compiler suite does not work when I run as the local administrator. We are using version 5.1.1 of bamboo.
My bamboo build plan includes a task that checks out my source code. The plan is configured to "Force Clean Build" which I take to mean that bamboo will delete the source tree and check out a fresh copy before attempting a new build.
The problem is that bamboo cannot delete the source tree. I get this error in the log:
|24-Apr-2014 14:16:14||Build always requires a clean checkout|
|24-Apr-2014 14:16:14||Cleaning build directory 'C:\MSA\GSCBA\bamboo-agent-home\xml-data\build-dir\GSCBA-PM-JOB1\GSCBA-PM'|
|24-Apr-2014 14:16:15||Unable to clean source directory 'C:\MSA\GSCBA\bamboo-agent-home\xml-data\build-dir\GSCBA-PM-JOB1\GSCBA-PM' Unable to delete directory C:\MSA\GSCBA\bamboo-agent-home\xml-data\build-dir\GSCBA-PM-JOB1\GSCBA-PM\tools\foo.|
The directory that it cannot delete seems to contain a directory named "bin". When I check ownship of the "bin" folder, windows explore shows unavailable or unknown. There's only one way to delete the tree that I have found: reboot. After rebooting, the "bin" folder is already gone. Just to be clear, after rebooting, I do not delete "bin" since its not there. After rebooting, the machine is happy to delete the tree. Obviously rebooting is not a viable solution since I do not always have physical access to this machine.
Can anyone suggest why the "bin" folder cannot be deteled without rebooting?
It sounds like something is using something in that directory. Since it's a 'bin' directory - does the build job start a process from it? If so, have you checked to see if the process is finished before the build ends?
