I'm setting up a 6.5 author locally to work out issue before I install on our linux server. I need to configure AEM to use a shared mounted drive for the location of its file data store. The data store will be shared with an offloader I'll be setting up next.
I've gone over this page Configuring node stores and data stores in AEM 6 and tried everything I can. When I set a different location the server either fails to start or it fails to use the new location. I start AEM using sudo to make sure it have permissions to do what ever it needs.
I've put these two files in the crx-quickstart/install dir with these settings commenting out various values for testing.
