A required folder, caches, is missing from the JIRA Shared Home directory or has the wrong permissions.
Create a folder called 'caches' in the JIRA Shared Home directory and make sure that directory can be read and written by other nodes. If the folder already exists, check the permissions to ensure the Jira user has read/write permissions.
