A user reports of getting this error caused by a MySQL Bug:

com.atlassian.jira.exception.DataAccessException: java.sql.SQLException: Can't create/write to file 'C:\temp2#sql_eb4_0.MYI' (Errcode: 17)
at com.atlassian.jira.upgrade.util.UpgradeUtils.getExactColumnName(

at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext.listenerStart(

where the error code means:

C:\>perror 17
OS error code 17: File exists

The Workaround:
Disabling their virus checker seemed to resolve the issue of JIRA not coming up. Users should therefore not run "on-access" checking on their JIRA servers.

Bug Details:
The bug is described in more detail on the following link MySQL Bug Forum.
