Jenkins copy directories/files in a build

I am trying to copy files out to a network directory during a build, and I keep getting a ” No such file or directory” error message.

Copying to local drive works fine:
cp -Rf c:/Jenkins/deployments/TW_ISSUE_A/src c:/Jenkins/deployments/TW_ISSUE_A/target

  • Jenkins How can i upload a text file and use it as a parameter
  • Best practice - Git + Build automation - Keeping configs separate
  • Jenkins - conditions between build steps
  • How do I configure the SVN HTTP proxy from the command line?
  • Is it a good practice to make a tag in git for every deployment build?
  • How do I avoid issues with “Protected Mode” using IEDriverServer in Selenium?
  • The following all throw the same message:

    • cp -Rf c:/Jenkins/deployments/TW_ISSUE_A/src H:/some_dir

    • cp -Rf c:/Jenkins/deployments/TW_ISSUE_A/src H:\some_dir

    • cp -Rf c:/Jenkins/deployments/TW_ISSUE_A/src //Hubbell/MISGenl/some_dir

    • cd c:/Jenkins/deployments/TW_ISSUE_A/src
      rsync -avuzb //Hubbell/MISGenl/Projects/Tronweb/TronwebBuilds/test/ora/sql/

    • cp -Rf c:/Jenkins/deployments/TW_ISSUE_A/src /cygdrive/h/some_dir

    I’ve even created a shell script to call from Jenkins, but I continue to receive that message.

    #fetch the artifacts
    (cd "$remote_stage_dir" && wget "$url" && tar xvf build-TW_ISSUE_A_BUILD.tar dat
     java ora && rm -rf *.tar && cp -r ./ora/* ../INTEGRATION)

    Is there any way to copy files out to a mapped drive on the build machine?

    Thank you!!

  • Do not run a category of slow JUnit tests by default in Maven and every IDE (Eclipse, IntelliJ, …) without an explicit TestSuite

    I would guess the mapped drive isn’t available in the services context, or that the user executing Jenkins doesn’t have access to it. What user is Jenkins running as?

    I think your problem has two aspects:

    1. The user running the Jenkins service isn’t allowed to connect to the network.
    2. h: isn’t known to the user.

    If you haven’t modified it, the service is most likely running under the LocalSystem account. You can modify this by running services.msc (or navigate to services via the Windows control panel) and locating the jenkins service. This should resolve the first problem.

    The second problem can be resolved by using UNC paths (as you tried above) instead of network drives.

    The Jenkins wiki has an article about problems like this: My software builds on my computer but not on Jenkins
