Delete documents after split brain

(Greg-4) #1


i am running a cluster of 5 servers. Elasticsearch version 0.90.5 .

Today we run into split brain. One of the server saw all server and was a
master and another 4 server saw only 4 servers ans has another server as a
master. We restarted "broken" server, so the problem was gone.

I need to delete a few documents from an index. Index has 5 shards and 1
replica. But if i try delete by query, elasticsearch says 5 shards failed
and documets stay there. If i try to delete document by id, elasticsearch
says -> document not exists. Do you have any ideas, how i can delete the
