After installing and learning how to install all the ELK stack components, getting the pipeline working, watching data flow into ES, I then installed the X-pack plug-in. This broke everything, but I eventually got all the security figured out and once again can now see the pipeline working. The X-pack Monitoring gui is great.
However, now it tells me that "Elasticsearch cluster status is yellow. Allocate missing replica shards."
"Allocate missing replica shards" is a hyperlink, and sounds like an action that will help me, so I click on it, and am taken to a list of indices. I sort by Unassigned Shards and find 2 indices with unassigned shards. 4 in one, 1 in the other.
But... now what? I imagined there would be another button to fix this problem, but I have no clear indication of how to proceed. I see a variety of other posts across the Internet regarding similar problems but they are for older versions and none make mention of how to handle this through x-pack.
I'm willing to learn, but after drinking from the fire-hose for this long am not sure which way to go with this.
Thanks for your time.
