Elasticsearch snapshot and restore in S3


Hi All,

Is it possible to restore a snapshot from one cluster to another? If so, what do we need to restore the snapshot from another cluster? Thanks!

I have done so in the past but usually via

Cluster1 -> S3 -> Cluster2.

Is that mechanism feasible for you?



Yes, that is what I'm trying to do but how can I access the snapshot created in Cluster1 so that I can restore it in Cluster2?

Create the S3 repository in cluster2 the same way you did for cluster1.

Don't mix major versions though. Or look at the readonly option.

If you are sure that the second cluster only needs to be seeded by the snapshot of cluster1, then definitely create the repository as readonly for cluster2.
