Error when running `yarn es snapshot` in development


(Hanqing Zhao) #1

I came across the same post:

There is something down on the server backend of snapshots.elastic.co. I tried many versions like 6.4.4, 6.4.3 and so on, they don't exist on the server.

yarn es uses snapshots from our nightly unified snapshot jobs. These are placed into an S3 bucket with a TTL, so they don't last forever. Since it's been quite sometime that 6.4 has been released, it's not expected to be available.

There are a couple options.

You can run Elasticsearch from source on the same branch. If you place the elasticsearch as a sibling to kibana you can run yarn es source and it will do all the building/running for you.

Alternatively, and probably the simplest option, you can download an Elasticsearch build and run it on your own.

Thanks for your help! I think it would be better to put it into the CONTRIBUTING doc.
