I am having a problem trying to create an ImageMosaic with GeoTIFF tiles that are stored on a separate local disk on my Geoserver server.

My data_dir is stored at the default location on the C: drive and I can create an ImageMosaic fine if the files are stored in there.

The problem is I need to store them outside on a separate local disk (D:) - when trying to create the ImageMosaic I receive the message:

"Could not list layers for this store, an error occurred retrieving them: Failed to create reader from file://D:\rasters\aerials\2008 and hints null"

I have also tried storing them on the C: drive but outside of the data_dir folder and again it gives the above message.

The confusing part is Geoserver is able to write files to the D: drive as I have my GeoWebCache directory pointing to the D: drive.

(I also tried to change the data_dir path to my D: drive but this didn't work).

I imagine there must be user / disk permission issues but I don't know what to change? Has anyone experienced these issues before?

I am using Geoserver 2.11.

Log file error:

  • what does the log file say happened? – Ian Turton May 31 '17 at 8:05
  • @iant I have included the log file error in the original question. – Chris May 31 '17 at 9:24

file://D:\rasters\aerials\2008 isn't a valid URL so it's failing. You need to use file://D:/rasters/aerials/2008

  • Brilliant thank you so much Ian that was the problem! The backslashes must have worked in the previous version of Geoserver I was using (although that was a very old version). – Chris May 31 '17 at 10:24
