NFS mounts are not supported for JIRA

Another JIRA question tells us why this is so, and that is very interesting.

Please tell me exactly what I should or should not do when upgrading from JIRA 4.0.2 to 6.3.  For example, do I avoid installing the JIRA software on an NFS mounted partition?  What about $JIRA_HOME?  And so on.

I'm not sure what more you need than the answer you've already found

The impact is simple - never put Jira's index on an NFS partition.  The index lives under $jira_home, so unless you are pulling some file system tricks, you don't want to place $jira_home on NFS.  The installation directory is probably ok though, although there's not a lot in the way of reason to place it on NFS.
