Repository does not exist


When trying to delete a repository, you receive a "the Repository does not exist: <GUID>" error.


The problem occurs when trying to delete a repository after upgrading from VBO365 v1.0 to v1.5 or v2.0, if the service was running under a domain account and the repository was located on an SMB share. After upgrading to v1.5 or v2.0, the services run under the local system account.


Give the account running the services on your VBO365 server access rights to the repository, and then delete it.
