Jira Shared Home (Jira Data Center) Edited

I have a separate host for shared home in my plugin. 

IP=72.26.207.21

Path=C:\Projects\Sahan\sharedJiraHome

I have defined it as below on my cluster.properties file.

jira.shared.home=\\172.26.207.21\C$\Projects\Sahan\sharedJiraHome

But looks like Jira doesn't get this location from the network. Instead it tries to create a new folder on my load balancer's C drive. 

172.26.207.21\C$\Projects\Sahan\sharedJiraHome

I am using ComponentAccessor.getComponent(JiraHome.class).getHomePath(). to get it.

Anyone has any idea on this?

Hi, jira shared home must be the same folder on all servers (nodes).

How to do this on Windows - written here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770569(v=ws.11).aspx

Thanks Nikita. I will try and come back.

Yes, Nikita you are correct. Anyway, I simply mapped the networked folder location into my local drive letter (z:)... by just right clicking on it and map drive option from the right click list.

I'm glad that everything works. :)

Cool. Thanks!
