Welcome to the forums!
JBoss seem determined to put application properties files in /, not JBOSS_HOME/ or user home dir or anything that could make sense, but the root dir. I've tried to make it work both as my regular user, as a designated jboss user and as root.
Which version of JBoss AS is this? JBoss AS by itself does not write out any properties files. What application have you deployed on the server? I guess it's the application which is writing out the file. Do you have access to the code for that application? If yes, could you post the relevant code which tries to write out the file?
Thank you for your quick reply. After a bit of soul searching, and a lot of source code searching, I have found that I was a bit unlucky with my selected applications. ClassLoaders seem to be a bit of an issue when moving to JBoss 7. Anyhow, an ugly hack got JAMWiki running for now on JBoss and since I'm not using IceScrum for production I'll just let it run on an internal Tomcat 6 until it get fixed.
A bit worrying though is the fact that after trying to enable IceScrum (which failed) I had to restart JBoss to be able to remove it using the web deployment interface.
