Description of problem:
In one of the customer sites, the deploy directory is owned by a user who only does code deployment and another team which just manages the Jboss Server. The team which manages the server doesn't have write access to the deployment folder.
They want to just deploy the apps at server boot time. They choose to set the hd-scanner scan interval to "0" or negative value to establish this, but in 6.1 we do not allow server to startup without write access to the deployment folder. In this case hot deployment is completely turned off by setting auto-deploy-*=false.
Using CLI or management console doesn't seem to be an option.
Need a way to deploy during startup, when there is no write access to deployment folder.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.the deploy directory is owned by a user who only does code deployment and another team which just manages the Jboss Server. The team which manages the server doesn't have write access to the deployment folder.
2.set deployment scanner with options like this :
"auto-deploy-exploded" => false,
"auto-deploy-xml" => false,
"auto-deploy-zipped" => false,
"deployment-timeout" => 600,
"path" => "deployments",
"relative-to" => "jboss.server.base.dir",
"scan-enabled" => true,
"scan-interval" => 0
3.Now try to start the server.
Server fails with
ERROR [org.jboss.as.controller.management-operation] JBAS014612: Operation ("add") failed - address: ([
("subsystem" => "deployment-scanner"),
