Curator snapshot fails

Hey all,

Trying to backup my ES indexes using curator.

I tried this approach, and failed:

[root@logs:~] #curator --http_auth "admin:$ES_PASS" snapshot --repository jf_backup --prefix jokefire- --ignore_unavailable --partial indices --all-indices
2015-11-20 22:21:07,530 INFO      Job starting: snapshot indices

2015-11-20 22:21:07,546 INFO      Action snapshot will be performed on the following indices: [u'.kibana', u'logstash-2015.11.19', u'logstash-2015.11.21']

Just wondering how I can alter that command so that it'll work. Any suggestions?

This means that Curator was unable to verify that each node had write access to the shared file system. What kind of shared filesystem is your repository?

Hey Aaron,

Yeah, I was using the same NFS share on each volume to store the snapshots. Turns out that volume was maxed out, so that's why I was getting that error. So I cleared out some space and ran the snapshot again. Glad I was able to resolve the problem and thanks for your input!
