Deflector exists as an index and is not an alias- graylog OVA 2.3


I’m getting the following error. I have tried to restarting, recalculating and rotating the index, but its not helping the issue. Any help would be appreciated. I just upgraded to OVA 2.3 from 2.2.

Deflector exists as an index and is not an alias. (triggered 41 minutes ago)
The deflector is meant to be an alias but exists as an index. Multiple failures of infrastructure can lead to this. Your messages are still indexed but searches and all maintenance tasks will fail or produce incorrect results. It is strongly recommend that you act as soon as possible

The only error i see in the logs is " [INFO ][o.e.c.m.MetaDataMappingService] [OCfQzX1] [graylog_deflector/LYTNzIfvSHyP9F7mQkJm9A] update_mapping [message]"

Thank you,

You have to stop Graylog, delete the index named graylog_deflector, then start Graylog again.

Hi Jochen,

Thank you for your quick reply. That did it. :slight_smile:
