      Description

      Problem Definition

      On Windows agents, Git checkout can fail due to a socket error. The error, coming from Windows, is

      java.io.IOException: An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket

      Suggested Solution

      This error is not very user friendly, so Bamboo could add to or override the error.
      For example:

      Sockets unavailable, please reset WinSocks by running netsh winsock reset from the command prompt

      Workaround

      To work around this error, please reset WinSocks as follows:

      1. Open the Command Prompt with elevated permissions (Run as Admin)
      2. Run the following command at the command prompt: netsh winsock reset
      3. Press Enter, and restart the computer
