No such file or directory when creating new GIT repo

JIRA is running on a CentOS machine, as is GIT.

The server running JIRA can clone the GIT repo, using it's ssh keys (as the user JIRA is running as).

When I configure the JIRA GIT plugin, I set the repo using the same clone URL, and specify an empty directory on the filesystem. When I index this, I get a "No such file or directory" error message. Looking at the logs I see the below stack trace.

I have tried this on the samba share and the local disk, but both produce the same results.

As a test I even tried to set the directory to have 777 permissions.

No Googling, searching or any other tests have produced anything useful, so any additional help would be appriciated.

Andrey had it right, would mark correct, but was only a comment.

Must clone each repo on the server.

Jarret - we commercially support this plugin. Feel free to contact us at support@bigbrassband.com

Directory you specified in the git plugin config should contain repository clone. As for version 1.2.11 plugin doesn't run clone itself
