JSP Error after Deploying Exploded Webapp Directory from Network (UNC) Path on WebLogic Server 12c

After deployment from Network (UNC) path, accessing a test JSP page results in the error "weblogic.servlet.jsp.CompilationException: Failed to compile JSP"
Upon further inspection of the error, it appears that the WebLogic instance is attempting to access the target JSP file locally rather than going to the UNC Path.
The UNC path has been verified to be correct and accessing other resources via the deployed application's context root through a web browser (.txt, .pdf, .gif, etc...) works properly. This appears to only affect JSP pages.
Note: this deployment from a UNC path has worked successfully with WebLogic 9 and 10 and it appears broken with WebLogic 12.2.1.2.0.
