Exit Repository install while connecting to existing MongoDB

Happy New Year,

I am new to linux (Linux Mint 20 “Ulyana” - Cinnamon (64-bit)) and trying to connect the MongoDB inside the Deadline Repository installer.

I followed the deadline documentation on installing the Database.

after a long exhausting way of getting the Deadline10db.service run I am now inside the Repository installer.

I started the installer with:
ws@ws-MS-7A38:/mnt/raid/NAS/Incoming$ sudo ./DeadlineRepository-10.1.12.1-linux-x64-installer.run

set the Repository Directory to
/mnt/raid/NAS/Thinkbox/DeadlineRepository10

chose connect to an existing DB

Whitin the MongoDB Database Settings I tried
Database Server
ws-MS-7A38;127.0.1.1, ws-MS-7A38;127.0.0.1 and localhost
Database Port
27100 is also set in the config.conf
Database Name
DeadlineDatabase10

Next, unchecked use SSL - Forward

and after all that, when trying to connect to the DB I get the following Error Message:

There has been an error.
An error occurred while trying to update database settings in the repository.
The application will exit now.

Is there a logfile somewhere? What can I do now?


Some additional info:
ws@ws-MS-7A38:~$ ps aux | grep mongo ws 35891 0.1 0.4 506940 70592 ? Sl 17:05 0:00 xed /opt/Thinkbox/DeadlineDatabase10/mongo/data/config.conf root 36060 0.3 0.4 381772 69120 ?

journalctl -u Deadline10db:

I found the installation log:

There may be a network issue, or a valid repository has not been installed at this location. If one has not yet setup a repository, it is possible to do so using the repository installer included in the installation files.

Script stderr:
 child process exited abnormally

An error occurred while trying to update database settings in the repository.

I am using the repository installer…

Okay, it’s working now. The solution was very … dumb.

I installed the repository with a new MongoDB on my windows C:\ drive.
Copied the Repository folder onto my Linux network drive.
Deinstalled the Windows repository.

Run the the linux installer on the linux machine install and install the Repository over the copied repository and connect with a previous installed Linux mongoDB.

Facing exactly the same issue, trying to install repository on mounted Elastic Filesystem Share and DocumentDB within AWS.

Linux installer bug?
