How to fix repository_missing_exception?


#1

Hi,

I made a snapshot on production tared the complete repository folder and moved it to another system for deeper analysis.
Path configuration for repository and snapshot is identical.

But on my target system I had too few storage, so I added a 2nd harddisk and tried:

  • symlinking the new harddisk to the repository folder
  • mounting the new harddisk directly to the repository folder

Then I extracted the tar there.
But my snapshots are not listed:

GET _snapshot/export

->

{
  "export": {
    "type": "fs",
    "settings": {
      "location": "/usr/local/elk/backup/export"
    }
  }
}


GET _snapshot/export/_all

->

{
  "error": {
    "root_cause": [
      {
        "type": "repository_missing_exception",
        "reason": "[export] missing"
      }
    ],
    "type": "repository_missing_exception",
    "reason": "[export] missing"
  },
  "status": 404
}

in filesystem it looks l

in filesystem it looks like this:

[root@vm export]# pwd
/usr/local/elk/backup/export

[root@vm export]# ls -l
insgesamt 60

[root@vm export]#

so, permissions are correct.

Any pitfall I trapped in?

Thanks, Andreas
