Can two bamboo remote agents share the same build working area?

We have a CI server that is running multiple agents - currently the agents dont share any build area. This leads to multiple svn checkouts of the same code depending in which agent builds a plan.

Can I set up the agents to share the build area so make checkouts 'quicker'?

Bamboo will do that automatically if you disable concurrent builds. There's no other way.

surely i have to configure each agent to have the same build area in their config files as well?

I thought you were talking about local agents. If you're using remote agents, yes, you do have to specify the same build directory in bamboo-agent.cfg.xml.

In general, such setup for remote agents is neither recommended nor supported - but it may work.
