I am attempting to restore a snapshot but it is the main index I am restoring and one of them is an active write index (and so it isn’t restored). How do I restore an index when there is always an active write index and that is skipped?
So for my purposes I just deleted the index before restoring by stoping the graylog service and then deleting the index through elasticsearch not graylog’s interface (commands below - from Ubuntu server 18.04 LTS):
$ sudo service graylog-server stop
List current indexes:
$ sudo curl -X GET localhost:9200/_cat/indices?v
Delete indexes needed:
$ sudo curl -X DELETE localhost:9200/<index you want deleted>
I am still interested (if someone can answer) if there is a way to restore an index without completely deleting it
or if there is just a better way though.
Maybe it can be done by just closing all indexes first (of course with Graylog service stopped)?
sudo curl -X POST localhost:9200/_all/_close
Anyone have ideas?
