"No such file or directory" when running simple command on linux bamboo agent. UPDATE - new question


I'll probably forget to include some details, so bear with me.


To demonstrate my problem I have created a simple plan. It's the sole purpose to verify a file exists by doing an "ls -ls <filename>". 


It fails. What am I doing wrong? I suspect ist has something to do with permissions on the build agent VM. 


On the build agent machine, a linux VM, I run the command

/usr/bin/ls -ls /home/bgillespie/ivy

total 8

0 drwxr-xr-x. 2 bamboo     bamboo      215 Feb 19 16:10 cache

4 -rwxrwxrwx. 1 bgillespie bgillespie 2602 Feb 19 15:43 ivyconf.xml

4 -rwxrwxrwx. 1 bgillespie bgillespie  218 Feb 18 13:40


Output from the build log when I run the plan in bamboo:


simple	19-Feb-2020 17:13:20	Starting task 'see if ivyconf.xml found' of type 'com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.scripttask:task.builder.command'

The directory itself is wide open permission wise

As a test I got a new VM spun up with same OS, installed the needed software including a new bamboo client and now my problem is gone. Apparently some kind of a problem with the build agent I was using.
