So you could try this. If using OnDemand 1.4, you can
cd /var/www/ood/apps/sys/files/ then edit
lib/cloudcmd/package.json and change
"copymitter": "1.8.10", to
"copymitter": "3.2.3",. Then in the root directory of the app run
bin/setup and it will rebuild the app with the updated dependency.
I do not know if this will address the problem you are facing or not though. If it does let me know and I’ll be sure to get this dependency update in the 1.5 release.
One thing I noticed while testing this is that at OSC on our web nodes directories like the project and scratch space ones auto-mount after you first cd to that directory. This means getting a listing of the project and scratch space directories before cd-ing to that directory doesn’t work. I doubt something like that is in play for you here but just thought I’d mention it.
