Cross cluster replication not able to start

I am facing an issue and that is I have created a 'leader01' index on leader node and when I am going to replicate it in follower node under 'follower01' index then follower node is not able to find the 'leader01' index


  "error" : {
    "root_cause" : [
        "type" : "index_not_found_exception",
        "reason" : "no such index [leader-01]",
        "index" : "leader-01",
        "" : "leader-01",
        "resource.type" : "index_expression",
        "index_uuid" : "_na_"
    "type" : "index_not_found_exception",
    "reason" : "no such index [leader-01]",
    "index" : "leader-01",
    "" : "leader-01",
    "resource.type" : "index_expression",
    "index_uuid" : "_na_"
  "status" : 404


HI @nikita_sahu,

According to error it seems you giving wrong index name leader-01 but it should be leader01 as you mentioned. Let me know if I am missing something.

Which version of Elasticsearch are you using? It is recommended to always include this when you create a post.

Thanks for your response @ashishtiwari1993 .

There is no confusion about wrong index,
actually, only leader-01 is right index that I have created and want to replicate from leader to follower.

Could you confirm index is exists from dev tools panel OR By hitting any random query to the index? As per error it seems wrong index name given.

Hi Ashish,

I have run this command "curl -XGET -k -u ‘admin:admin’"on leader with leader’s password and same with follower credentials on follower’s vm. so i have these are the right method to run command. I’m attaching the result of both the vm.

Result of Leader node:

OpenSearch/OpenDistro are AWS run products and differ from the original Elasticsearch and Kibana products that Elastic builds and maintains. You may need to contact them directly for further assistance. See What is OpenSearch and the OpenSearch Dashboard? | Elastic for more details.

(This is an automated response from your friendly Elastic bot. Please report this post if you have any suggestions or concerns :elasticheart: )

The Opensearch implementation of cross cluster replication is completely separate from the one in Elasticsearch and is not supported here. You will need to bring this up with the OpensSearch community.

Hi christian,

Thankyou for the help and assistence.
