Elasticsearch Importing Backups of Indices/Files


Hoping to get some guidance on Importing/Restoring from older Elasticsearch versions.

Version coming from 0.90.x going to 1.6.x

Server info: RHEL 6.X
ENV: Development
Purpose: Upgrade to latest ELK Stack versions

I have followed the backup procedures listed here (https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/setup-upgrade.html)

However after I have zipped/tar'ed up the Elasticsearch indices, I cannot find the best way to import them into 1.6.x.

I need assistance on how to import data from different Elasticsearch servers into the latest Version, so I can provided a seamless as possible upgrade for Elasticsearch.

Thanks in advance,

Rob Groos

I'd try using Logstash to do it , like this - https://gist.github.com/markwalkom/8a7201e3f6ea4354ae06
