    Description

      Build: 7.0.0-3874

      Steps:

      • Created the directory 'b2' under /mnt folder on the target backup node
      • From the UI, used the path '/mnt/b2' for "Create Repo -> Archive" settings.

      Observation:

      While clicking "Add" button, getting the error message,

      Could not add repository: location not accessible by all nodes - node f175cfe76458990c8f989a7cef9b6a93 cannot access location /mnt/b2

      After giving "chmod o+wx /mnt/b2", backup repo was created successfully.

      Expected info:

      Information related to the directory permissions should be present in the docs.

      Doc reference: https://docs-staging.couchbase.com/server/7.0/manage/manage-backup-and-restore/manage-backup-and-restore.html

      Prints with which the error is observed:

      [root@node1-cb601-centos7 mnt]# ls -l
      drwxr-xr-x 2 root root  6 Dec 11 10:00 b2

          Ashwin Govindarajulu Dor the backup service the couchabse user requires read and write persmissions for the directory we are using for the backups. I will try to improve the error messages related to this in another MB and pass this on to the docs team to see if they can add a note to the docs saying that the archive must be readable and writable by Couchbase.
