    * Having a stale index directory causes some weirdness. ## Start up JIRA. ## Configure JIRA. ## Stop JIRA. Make the index directory readonly (I make the caches directory in JIRA_HOME read only) ## Restart JIRA. JIRA does not complain about the directory being invalid until you actually try to do some searching. Should be issue some warnings before hand? ## Goto the "Admin > Indexing". Note that indexing appears to be disabled. ## Reindex JIRA. I get the error message "Error occurred while activating indexes: com.atlassian.jira.util.RuntimeIOException: java.io.IOException: Cannot create directory: E:\blitz\home\caches\indexes\comments". I am then returned to the index screen and it appears that the index is now enabled even though it is broken. ## Try to reindex again. This time I get a long runnin task result with stack trace like the following. Indexing still appears to be enabled. {code} com.atlassian.jira.util.RuntimeIOException: java.io.IOException: Cannot create directory: E:\blitz\home\caches\indexes\comments at com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.IndexDirectoryFactory$Name.getFileSystemDirectory(IndexDirectoryFactory.java:91) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.IndexDirectoryFactory$Name.getDirectory(IndexDirectoryFactory.java:78) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.IndexDirectoryFactory$IndexPathAdapter.get(IndexDirectoryFactory.java:125) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.IndexDirectoryFactory$IndexPathAdapter.get(IndexDirectoryFactory.java:107) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.DefaultIssueIndexer$Lifecycle.open(DefaultIssueIndexer.java:285) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.DefaultIssueIndexer$Lifecycle.iterator(DefaultIssueIndexer.java:264) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.DefaultIssueIndexer.deleteIndexes(DefaultIssueIndexer.java:173) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.DefaultIndexManager.reIndexAll(DefaultIndexManager.java:225) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:39) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:25) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:597) at com.atlassian.util.profiling.object.ObjectProfiler.profiledInvoke(ObjectProfiler.java:71) at com.atlassian.jira.config.component.SwitchingInvocationHandler.invoke(SwitchingInvocationHandler.java:28) at $Proxy9.reIndexAll(Unknown Source) at com.atlassian.jira.util.index.IndexLifecycleManager$Composite.reIndexAll(IndexLifecycleManager.java:112) at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.admin.index.ReIndexAsyncIndexerCommand.doReindex(ReIndexAsyncIndexerCommand.java:29) at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.admin.index.AbstractAsyncIndexerCommand.call(AbstractAsyncIndexerCommand.java:55) at com.atlassian.jira.task.TaskManagerImpl$TaskCallableDecorator.call(TaskManagerImpl.java:360) at edu.emory.mathcs.backport.java.util.concurrent.FutureTask.run(FutureTask.java:178) at edu.emory.mathcs.backport.java.util.concurrent.Executors$RunnableAdapter.call(Executors.java:442) at edu.emory.mathcs.backport.java.util.concurrent.FutureTask.run(FutureTask.java:178) at com.atlassian.jira.task.ForkedThreadExecutor$ForkedRunnableDecorator.run(ForkedThreadExecutor.java:252) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:619) {code}
