So after a little googling around, this appears to be a repeatable problem, in that the redeploy publisher no longer reverts to the global settings.xml file, which is a pain in the arse. WE can resolve this by copying the settings.xml into .m2, which isn't
really a good as a long term solution.
Anyhow, this brings me to the next problem. We get an ERror: ReturnCode 401;unauthorised. The login credentials are in the settings.xml, and the pom has the correct id reference, does anyone have any suggestions? We;re trying to deploy to Nexus, the account
in settings.xml exists and password are correct it has group deploy privileges, and as far as I can tell everything joins up.
