I have problem with blob store in network storage. I have installed Nexus Repository 3 (version “OSS 3.22.1-02”) on a windows server 2012 r2 standard.
I would like to create a new blobstore in another server using UNC path (\server\path\to\folder) but it doesn’t seem to work. I don’t want to store my releases on the same server than Nexus server (because of the hard drive capacity).
I read that it has to implement NFSv4 to work (Storage Guide), so I configured it and it’s still not working. I tried with the web wizard on Nexus Repository (blob stores > create new blob store) and an error appear:
Unable to initialize blob store directory structure: \BigData\Central\DIT\SE\Dev\Nexus, Cause: \BigData\Central\DIT\SE\Dev\Nexus
(The error isn’t clear by the way…)
I tried next to create the blob store locally and then move it to a network storage following the guide found here : Relocating Blob Stores – Sonatype Support) I specified the UNC path in the “update repository_blobstore…” step.
After these operations I went to the administration of blob store but Nexus tells me that the blob store is “unavailable” (but I notice but the “path” of the blob store has change and is the UNC path).
What am I doing wrong? It isn’t possible to store blob in another server using UNC path (or somethinf similar)
Thank you in advance for your help!
