Hi Ken, seems that JIRA is trying to read the dbconfig.xml from E:\Jira_Home, one of the possible cause can be that the user running JIRA doesn't have permission to read the file, it's more common when JIRA is configured to run as a Windows service.

One other thing could be that the dbconfig.xml file is corrupted somehow, in this case you may delete it and recreate it using JIRA Configuration Tool.

I hope it helps.

Cheers
