Please see this answer in release notes -

If you are installing the vtl software on a network file system (such as NFS or AFS), you may experience security-related installation failures, depending on how the network file system was set up. In the event of such a failure, you should first install the needed software locally (by default, the /opt/intel and /opt/sagdirectories, and their subdirectories), and then, after successful completion, put the software on the shared drive. To complete this process, you need to create symbolic links pointing from the local directories to the network directories. [SCR #13717]
"

Even you completed all of above, vtune driver (module) only can be installed for one specificbox. That means, if other box wants to run sampling -vtune driver should be rebuilt/ reinstalled for that box.

I don't see any benefit if install the product in a shared filesystem!

Regards, Peter
