      Description

      The default jar cache location is now hardcoded to ~/.jenkins/cache/jars which is a really bad idea for a big production environment with networked home directories and multiple accounts running slaves.

      This behaviour was introduced with this commit:
      https://github.com/jenkinsci/remoting/commit/b5145a06876f4390ef3229d70fa5a7edf0739dae

      This cache location needs to be configurable.

      A bonus would be if permissions within it were handled in a way that supports multiple accounts using it. That might be the case already though.

            JENKINS-18578 - Do not use the old cache when starting agents from CLI

            Just a leftover from the previous fix, nulls are handled in hudson.remoting.Engine.

            The work directory feature has been integrated towards 2.68, hence now it is possible to change the default location. Follow JENKINS-44108, which has stories for enabling work directories by default on different agent types

            I just updated jenkins from 2.58 to 2.68, after that I got:

            ...

            ERROR: Unexpected error in launching a slave. This is probably a bug in Jenkins. java.lang.RuntimeException: Root directory not writable: /folk/jenkins/.jenkins/cache/jars

            ...

            It was fine on 2.58!

            Peng Sun The Work Dir functionality is disabled by default, but there are some extra checks in the FileJarCache logic. Please file a separate bug and attach a full stacktrace.
