(Srinivasan Ramesh) #1

i have been using elasticsearch 5.5.3
i need to create a backup.

This is my path

path.repo :["/home/devadmin/backup"]

i tried this in kibana :

PUT /_snapshot/my_backup
{
"type": "fs",
"settings": {
"location": "/home/devadmin/backup"
}
}

My error is

{
"error": {
"root_cause": [
{
"type": "repository_exception",
"reason": "[my_backup] location [/home/devadmin/backup] doesn't match any of the locations specified by path.repo because this setting is empty"
}
],
"type": "repository_exception",
"reason": "[my_backup] failed to create repository",
"caused_by": {
"type": "repository_exception",
"reason": "[my_backup] location [/home/devadmin/backup] doesn't match any of the locations specified by path.repo because this setting is empty"
}
},
"status": 500
}

Did you restart the nodes? If you have many nodes, did you do that on all nodes?
