Retention Policy with the Java Client

Im doing batch writes with the java client over http, but i have something very strange happening.

When the retention policy is set to autogen, the client write succeeds, but when it is set to any other value the write fails.

Any suggestions?

As an added note … Does anyone know where to find client errors?
looking at influx internals, whenever I Run this batch I get a client error (as recorded in

_internal.httpd. “clientError” any way to track down logging for that?

@David_Cohen The Java client has a way to specify retention policy when instantiating the client. As to your client error question they should be in the logs. The logs are either at /var/log/influxdb/influxdb.log or journalctl -u influxdb.
