            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(name.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 the path.repo setting; but the path.repo setting was not set on this node"; location);
                throw new RepositoryException(name.name(); "location [" + location + "] doesn't match any of the locations specified by path.repo because this setting is empty");
            }
        }

        blobStore = new FsBlobStore(settings; locationFile);
