Before you begin reading this guide, we recommend you run Elasticsearch Error Check-Up which can resolve issues that cause many errors.

This guide will help you check for common problems that cause the log ” The specified location doesnt start with any ” to appear. It’s important to understand the issues related to the log, so to get started, read the general overview on common issues and tips related to the Elasticsearch concepts: repositories and repository-azure.

Advanced users might want to skip right to the common problems section in each concept or try running the Check-Up which analyses ES to pinpoint the cause of many errors and provides suitable actionable recommendations how to resolve them (free tool that requires no installation).

Log Context

Log “The specified location [{}] doesn’t start with any” classname is FsRepository.java
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

             throw new RepositoryException(metadata.name(); "missing location");
        }
        Path locationFile = environment.resolveRepoFile(location);
        if (locationFile == null) {
            if (environment.repoFiles().length > 0) {
                logger.warn("The specified location [{}] doesn't start with any "
                    + "repository paths specified by the path.repo setting: [{}] "; location; environment.repoFiles());
                throw new RepositoryException(metadata.name(); "location [" + location
                    + "] doesn't match any of the locations specified by path.repo");
            } else {
                logger.warn("The specified location [{}] should start with a repository path specified by"
