Describe the feature : Elasticsearch service doesn't get started if path.repo contains a repository path that needs credentials.
Elasticsearch version (
bin/elasticsearch --version ): 6.5.4
Plugins installed : [Search guard]
JVM version (
java -version ): 1.8
OS version (
uname -a if on a Unix-like system): Windows 10, Windows Server 2012 R2
Description of the problem including expected versus actual behavior :
When we give a repository path which needs credentials in path.repo & we connect to that repository using net use command, elasticsearch doesn't start as a service. However, elasticsearch.bat works perfectly fine.
Fails with error message like this: "Exception java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unable to access 'path.repo', Caused by: java.nio.file.FileSystemException, Unable to determine if root directory exists "
Steps to reproduce :
- Open elasticsearch.yml & add a repository path to path.repo. The repository path should be asking for credentials (may be give cross domain machine's share)
- Now execute this command to connect to the share: "net use '\machine-name\share1'"
- Once you are connected, start Elasticsearch as a service. Fails with above mentioned exception. Try starting the same using "elasticsearch.bat", it works perfectly.
