    Information provided in the DOORS documentation about
    running DOORS Server on a mapped drive is contradicting.
    
    Information in Step-7 of 'Installing the Rational DOORS
    database server on Windows' in the following link states
    that 'Rational DOORS does not support mapped drives for
    data'
    
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/doorshlp/v9/topic/c
    om.ibm.doors.install.doc/topics/t_installingdbserver.html?re

    2%69%76%65%22%20
    
    However, the information in the following link of the same
    documentation states that users can start DOORS server (in a
    console mode) by pointing ServerData to a mapped drive.
