Only your 5th question isn't answered there. I'd also point out that you can run it on non-supported platforms - anything that runs a JVM for the application and any database with JDBC support can be made to run Atlassian apps, but the further you wander from their officially supported platforms, the more likely you are to run into problems that no-one else has hit.

That's not correct -- Fisheye and Crucible have to support it, too.

No, you're wrong, but I think you've misunderstood me.

You do NOT need Fisheye and Crucible to "support" a database in order to get them to work with it. My experience which lead me to say "any database with JDBC support" was specifically for running Fisheye on a non-supported database and it worked back then and is still working fine now. You won't be supported, but that does not stop it working.

What kind of database is that, what version of FishCru and have you upgraded FishCru since then?

Good for you, then. I wouldn't touch that with a 50-foot pole, having had to deal with FishCru on Solaris (but with a supported database).

Should anyone else be in this boat, beware of SunPKCS11 security provider -- may cause lockup when entropy runs out.

An internal one - it had a JDBC connection and accepted standard SQL, so it worked fine.

Last I heard, it was still running fine and had been upgraded to the lastest version of FeCru.

Ohh, yes, the PCKS stuff on Solaris has caused me problems with other stuff.

My point was that it *can* work well on non-supported stuff. Of course, your life is likely to be a lot easier if you do stick to the supported configs. Most importantly, my point was you do not HAVE to use supported configs, which is what you said.

I ran Crucible for almost a year on AIX 6.1, and then encountered a bug where the logs would grow very rapidly, fill the disk, and stop the server. The bug is intermittent, and I couldn't identify a cause.

Atlassian support couldn't help because it's not a supported environment. I am migrating it to a different system because of this bug.
