That warning is only a warning. The relocate command when really
executed does checks that access the repository too. But if the
repository isn't available, the relocate will succeed anyway without any
warnings. So we show a warning beforehand.
What you're trying to do here is the same that the relocate command does
later (and some more).
But: as I mentioned before, in most situations where a relocate is done,
the repository isn't accessible anymore so the checks will fail.
