Jira Home directory configuration

Trying to configure a Jira install to have it's home directory on a file server. Tried these approaches:

1. Updated jira.home in jira-application.properties with a mapped drive to the file server. Resulted in a Could not create jira home directory.. message upon trying to start Jira

2. Updated jira.home in jira-application.properties with a symbolic link to the file server. Resulted in a Could not create jira home directory.. message upon trying to start Jira

3. Updated jira.home in jira-application.properties with the UNC to the file server. Resulted in a jira.home must be an absolute path.. message upon trying to start Jira

So the question...is this possible?

1 answer

Yes, it's possible but it's higly unadvisable. 1) should work.
