Enabling symbloc link of PA conf directory to shared directory

1. The JVM version we are currently using in PA does not work well with s-link

2. With current PA design, PA data collection node does request a CONF directory on local FileSystem, there are some parameters are applied to local binaries, however, for for the point #1 above, we can't set it up as a s-link points to the shared CONF directory

3. This issue does not only occurs on PA, all the other Java-based EGO services would have the same limitation as well.

4. PA does not expect user modify parameters set in local CONF, all the config change need to be made on shared CONF

5. There's no EGO document states the local CONF can be set as a s-link or removed, although it is widely applied in Platform Symphony world (That just because most services are NOT Java based).
