Subversion usage questions should be sent to users {AT} subversion.tigris.org, this list is on developing subversion itself.

I assume you are talking about NAS (Network attached storage) here? (Not NAT = Network Address Translation).

In that case "J:\" is a network drive mapping, and drive mappings are per user and unavailable for services. You should use the UNC path instead.
