Upgrading Fisheye/Crucible to 3.2.0, error when communicating with git repositories using SSH

I cannot use the upload private ssh key method as it always fails to save the private key. I tried generating a pair of keys (as recommended), I placed the public key in my user on Stash. whenever I test the connection it fails.

Error testing connection.
CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

Connection failed.

Which file can the system not find?

If you are running FishEye on windows, you may have hit https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/FE-4984 which has been fixed in 3.2.1.

Otherwise we will need to see more of you stacktrace and logs. Also please ensure tha the git executable is still available on your instance to the fisheye runuser.

Feel free to raise a support request immediately and reference this question with more information and logs if you don't wish to add those things publicly here.

Hi Nick,

We upgraded on Friday and that seems to have fixed our problem. Thanks!

Hi Nick,

Thanks for answering so quickly. I am going to try upgrading to 3.2.1 and see if that fixes the problem. If it does not I will update this question with more logs and more information. As to your question "Which file can the system not find?" I am guessing it can't find "echo" I have no idea. Here are more errors

Hi Rick,

That definitely looks like the same bug as fixed in 3.2.1. Can you please try 3.2.1 and update this question with the result.



I'm having git/gitolite communication errors on Crucible 3.1.5. I generated SSH keys, and uploaded the public key per gitolite convention. But when testing the connection I get this error:

Fisheye is using '/usr/bin/ssh' to authenticate with SSH authenticated repositories.

Error testing connection.
