I have installed elasticsearch (unzip the zip installer and running it using cmd ) on windows server and started using it since last 2 weeks.
But now, I would like to run it as service rather than running it from cmd prompt. In order to do that, I have used the msi installer to install the elasticsearch as service.
It is up and running on the same host/port. I also copied the data folder from previous elasticsearch. But I still don't see the content of previous data.
What things do I need to consider to copy existing data ( and template). Do I need to apply the template again on the new MSI instance as well?
Version 6.0.1 (both exe and msi)
