Allocation via _id vs _ip

(Shairon Toledo) #1

Hi guys,

For instability reason(I guess in Amazon EC2) we're moving our cluster from
a zone to another, we're doing this node by node.
Using allocation API by _ip I can exclude a node from cluster. When I
include a new node by _ip

curl -XPUT localhost:9200/_cluster/settings -d '{
"transient" : {
"cluster.routing.allocation.include._ip" :

I see the new node on _cluser/_nodes but shards is not initializing on it
even in a period of 3 hours after performed the command, I already tried in
transient and persistent mode.

However when I include using _id the shards start initializing right away.

How you experienced something like that? If so, how to troubleshoot that?

I don't like the idea to use _id for allocate nodes if a node fail and need
be restarted, the id become other.
