Sitecore 9.3 Publishing error when executing full republish - system.InvalidOperationException:Blobstorage

Hello Sitecorians,

Emer Kurbegovic and I Just ran into this on a fresh 9.3 IAAS install when configuring an additional publishing target for preview purposes.

A smart publish worked fine.

When executing a full republish we got this error:


system.InvalidOperationException:Blobstorage



This was actually an easy fix, starting in 9.3 in you need to define the blob storage element in your db config. If you do a showconfig, It looks like this:

<BlobStorage>
<BlobStorage hint="raw:AddBlobStorage">
<providers default="classic">
<provider name="classic" type="Sitecore.Data.Blobs.ClassicSqlBlobProvider, Sitecore.Kernel">
<param desc="databaseName">$(id)</param>
</provider>
</providers>
</BlobStorage>

This is in the sitecore doc HERE but they don't really explain this they way they should IMHO

Hope this helps someone

Colin
