Deploying script using deployment server returns permission denied

I have a Bash script on our deployment server. The directory tree and the inputs.conf file:

bin
    bash_script.sh
local
    inputs.conf
    app.conf

The inputs.conf file:

[script://./bin/bash_script.sh]
interval = -1

I restart the deployment server. I then check one of the servers I have this app deployed to:

index="_internal" bash-script sourcetype=splunkd host="specific-hostname"

message from "/opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/bash_script/bin/bash_script.sh" /bin/sh: 1: /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/bash_script/bin/bash_script.sh: Permission denied

That path and file does exist on the destination server.

What am I missing?

Verify the script has execute (x) permission granted.

chmod 700 bin/bash_script.sh

Hi @CMSchelin,

in addition to the first intervene that must be the one hinted by @richgalloway, what's the operative system of your Deployment Server?

If it's Windows you have a problem to deploy Linux scripts from a Windows DS.

Ciao.
