Delete actual config of snapshot

After working for a while in test mode, I wanted to start using NFS as a mount point for snapshots.

  • I had a configuration in the elasticsearch.yml file `path.repo:/snapshot_elk
  • I remember creating the snapshot with Kibana

  "back-up": {
    "type": "fs",
    "uuid": "67-oX9ZgQRW2sh7u1sOmxg",
    "settings": {
      "compress": "true",
      "location": "/snapshot_elk"

I have changed the path in the elasticsearch.yml file to path.repo: /mnt/nfs/elasticsearch/cluster01

But when restarting elasticsearch I see the errors

[2022-10-11T08:51:42,677][WARN ][o.e.r.f.FsRepository ] [] The specified location [/snapshot_elk] doesn't start with any repository paths specified by the path.repo setting: [[ /mnt/nfs/elasticsearch/cluster01]]
[2022-10-11T08:51:42,678][WARN ][o.e.r.RepositoriesService] [] failed to create repository [fs][backup]
org.elasticsearch.repositories.RepositoryException: [backup] location [/snapshot_elk] doesn't match any of the locations specified by path.repo

I am lost because I don't even know what my snapshot is called or how to delete it or modify it from the configuration to start from 0
