Too many levels of symbolic links/Archiving artifact stuck


      When we have the symbolic links in src code like,

      dir1 -> .
      dir2 -> ../../../..

      Symptoms observed during this problematic phase:

      • The “Archiving artifact” step under Post- build phase get stuck. We can see the never ending cycling icon…
      • the slave node will report error like “too many levels of symbolic links” and ping response time would gradually degrade, eventually killing the slave.
      • the build log may also have error like WARN: Caught error while checking for symbolic links
