i am currently setting up a gitlab installation in a local network for test purposes. I ran into some problems after trying to change the git_data_dir to a mounted cifs share. After the change it is no longer possible to create new projects. The error message states
Failed to create repository via gitlab-shell
After some research I found this issue report https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/13734
Does this mean that it is in general not possible to store the repos on a cifs share? If not how can I resolve this problem?
