cannot exec /tmp/bamboo-ssh

The /tmp directory in my production environment has been marked as noexec by IS and is not negotiable. Is there another way around this error?

Here is the full error:

 

Cannot fetch branch '(unresolved) master' from 'ssh://git@hidden' to source directory '/data/bamboo-agent-home/agents/bamboo-agent-1/xml-data/build-dir/OCUAT-OSCICD-JOB1/hidden'. com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.git.GitCommandException: command /bin/git ls-remote ssh://eb3096ff-cf78-449c-9b5d-10c3d39c70e8@127.0.0.1:45581/hidden/hidden.git failed with code 128.

You can get around this by setting the java.io.tmpdir system property, as that is where Bamboo is pulling it from.  On the server, you can add -Djava.io.tmpdir=/new/location that to your JVM options.  For remote agents, you can modify conf/wrapper.conf in the agent home directory to add this VM option.  

Find the spot in your wrapper.conf file where additional JVM options are set and add it.

# The Bamboo Agent home configuration file
wrapper.java.additional.1=-Dbamboo.home=/g/g21/gamblin2/bamboo/agent-home
wrapper.java.additional.2=-Djava.io.tmpdir=/new/location

Here I had one option and added the 2nd, so I suffixed with .2.  You may need to use a different suffix depending on how many args are already there.

I guess Atlassian never answered this? I have a similar issue.
