Elastic 5.0 master node + distant path data [SOLVED]

I'm configuring my Elasticsearch cluster 5.0.

My question concern the master nodes.
As the documentation say i have added the following lines to my configuration :

node.master: true
node.data: false
node.ingest: false

In the documentation i saw this :

Master nodes must have access to the data/ directory (just like data nodes) as this is where the cluster state is persisted between node restarts.

My storage is on my data nodes.
I would like to konw how can i specifie the distant data path on my master configuration ?

is "path.data: IPaddress:/path/to/data" works ?

No you cannot, it needs to be local.

It doesn't need a lot of space, a few MB to a GB at most.

So when they say "Master nodes must have acess to the data directory", they do not mean to have access to the directory where all the data will be stored.

They just want to say, a master need a data directory to work fine. That's it ?

It means that the master node still creates a data directory, it just hardly stores anything in comparison to a data node.

So you don't need to do anything :slight_smile:

okay thanks :slight_smile:
