Setting up data.repo?

Hey all,
I've set up data.repo inside the elasticsearch.yml file as such:

path.repo: ["/mount/restore/data"]

Afterwards I restarted elasticsearch and when I try to create a backup repository I'm told:

["mount/restore/data"] doesn't match any of the locations specified by the path.repo because this setting is empty.

So I checked the node, and sure enough, there is no path.repo variable set. It's in the config file. Does anyone know why this might be happening?

On further study:
The variable shows up on one node. Do all nodes need to have this path defined? I tried this the other day and they all failed on me.
