Not able to define location on PeopleSoft Virtual machine  

Have installed and configured PeopleSoft HCM Image 27 on Virtual box. We are in process of applying HCM application fixes and patches to bring our environments current.

In change assistant, there is one step to apply ADS MO project. To apply ads mo project, we need to setup file location on virtual machine. Below is the documentation which talks about how to setup file location.

https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E99483_01/pt857pbr1/eng/pt/tlcm/task_ManagingADSProjectFileLocations.html

I created folder ads and subfolder AREA within ads folder. When I define absolute path, I get warning and not able to see AREA folder under Area name grid.

"Warning: It is strongly recommended that the specified path be an absolute network path.
The specified path must be accessible from both the Application Server and the Process Scheduler application engine server. Absolute network paths are less prone to issues...."
