minio-server has passed automated validation. It may have or may still fail other checks like testing (verification).
NOTE: No required changes that the validator checks have been flagged! It is appreciated if you fix other items, but only Requirements will hold up a package version from approval. A human review could still turn up issues a computer may not easily find.


Guidelines are strong suggestions that improve the quality of a package version. These are considered something to fix for next time to increase the quality of the package. Over time Guidelines can become Requirements. A package version can be approved without addressing Guideline comments but will reduce the quality of the package.

  • Package contains dependencies with no specified version. You should at least specify a minimum version of a dependency. More...
  • Release Notes (releaseNotes) are a short description of changes in each version of a package. Please include releasenotes in the nuspec. NOTE: To prevent the need to continually update this field, providing a URL to an external list of Release Notes is perfectly acceptable. More...

minio-server has failed automated testing.
This is not the only check that is performed so check the package page to ensure a 'Ready' status.
Please visit for details.
The package status will be changed and will be waiting on your next actions.

  • NEW! We have a test environment for you to replicate the testing we do. This can be used at any time to test packages! See
  • Please log in and leave a review comment if you have questions and/or comments.
  • If you see the verifier needs to rerun testing against the package without resubmitting (a issue in the test results), you can do that on the package page in the review section.
  • If the verifier is incompatible with the package, please log in and leave a review comment if the package needs to bypass testing (e.g. package installs specific drivers).
  • Automated testing can also fail when a package is not completely silent or has pop ups (AutoHotKey can assist - a great example is the VeraCrypt package).
  • A package that cannot be made completely unattended should have the notSilent tag. Note that this must be approved by moderators.

We've found minio-server v2020.10.18 in a submitted status and waiting for your next actions. It has had no updates for 20 or more days since a reviewer has asked for corrections. Please note that if there is no response or fix of the package within 15 days of this message, this package version will automatically be closed (rejected) due to being stale.

Take action:

  • Log in to the site and respond to the review comments.
  • Resubmit fixes for this version.
  • If the package version is failing automated checks, you can self-reject the package.

If your package is failing automated testing, you can use the chocolatey test environment to manually run the verification and determine what may need to be fixed.

Note: We don't like to see packages automatically rejected. It doesn't mean that we don't value your contributions, just that we can not continue to hold packages versions in a waiting status that have possibly been abandoned. If you don't believe you will be able to fix up this version of the package within 15 days, we strongly urge you to log in to the site and respond to the review comments until you are able to.

Unfortunately there has not been progress to move minio-server v2020.10.18 towards an approved status within 15 days after the last review message, so we need to close (reject) the package version at this time. If you want to pick this version up and move it towards approval in the future, use the contact site admins link on the package page and we can move it back into a submitted status so you can submit updates.

Status Change - Changed status of package from 'submitted' to 'rejected'.


Minio is a distributed object storage server, written in Go and open sourced under Apache License Version 2.0

Amazon S3 Compatible

Amazon S3 API is the de facto standard for object storage. Minio implements Amazon S3 v2/v4 API. Use Minio SDK, Minio Client, AWS SDK and AWS CLI to access Minio server.

Data Protection

Minio protects data against hardware failures using erasure code and bitrot detection. You may lose up to half the number of drives and still recover from it. Data protection code is accelerated using SIMD instructions on x64 and ARM CPUs.

Highly Available

Minio server can tolerate up to (N/2)-1 node failures in a distributed setup. In addition, you may configure Minio server to continuously mirror data between Minio and any Amazon S3 compatible server.

Lambda Compute

Minio server triggers Lambda functions through its AWS SNS/SQS compatible event notification service. Supported targets are message queues such as Kafka, NATS, AMQP, MQTT, Webhooks, and databases such as Elasticsearch, Redis, Postgres, and MySQL. Thumbnail generation, OCR and audit compliance are good examples of lambda computing.

Encryption and Tamper-Proof

Minio provides confidentiality, integrity and authenticity assurances for encrypted data with negligible performance overhead. Both server side and client side encryption are supported using AES-256-GCM, ChaCha20-Poly1305 and AES-CBC. Encrypted objects are tamper-proofed with AEAD server side encryption.

Pluggable Storage Backend

In addition to Minio's own filesystem and erasure code backends for DAS and JBODs, external storage backends such as NAS, Google Cloud Storage, and Azure Blob Storage are supported as well.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
