      Azure Red hat OpenShift

      Description

      Hello,
      I've been testing Business Central (from PAM7.6) in Azure RHT Openshift (ARO).
      In summary, HA Business Central is not feasible using Azure File (the RWX filesystem offered through Azure).

      Recommendation: Document that Azure File is not a viable option for HA Business Central. The customer will need to seek an alternative RWX filesystem.

      Specifics of my testing as follows:

      1) BC (from PAM 7.6) using a RWO "Azure Disk" StorageClass for OCP4.* works well but does not provide HA
      2) BC (from PAM 7.6) using a RWX "Azure File" StorageClass for OCP4.* does not start up. It chokes on the following line in jgit: https://github.com/eclipse/jgit/blob/v5.0.2.201807311906-r/org.eclipse.jgit/src/org/eclipse/jgit/util/FS_POSIX.java#L386
      In particular, a hard-link is being attempted.
      Azure File does not allow creation of a hard link as per: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/storageservices/features-not-supported-by-the-azure-file-service (in contrast, a soft link is possible).
