Custom metadata storage

Hi all,
I have configured our dremio metastore to a custom storage to a mounted disk instead of default location /var/lib/dremio by changing paths.local in dremio.conf.

However, after this setup, elastic engines are failing with below error:
Error: AWS provisioning requires “paths.local” to be set to “/var/lib/dremio” in dremio.conf. It is currently set to /mnt/c1/dremio/data

I have followed the steps from the documentation link:

Can anyone help me on this issue.



What happens if you symlink “/mnt/c1/dremio/data” to “/var/lib/dremio”

ln -s /mnt/c1/dremio/data /var/lib/dremio
