I have ES 1.7, with two nodes in the cluster:
- Master, with this config:
node.master: true node.data: true
it sits on a machine with 8 GB RAM and one TB space (I know there's not enough RAM, we're waiting for it to be purchased)
- second node, with this config:
node.master: false node.data: true
it sits on a machine with 32 GB RAM and one TB space.
I need an advice, should I change the second node to be my master or not?
And if I do make the change, what will happen to the data the current master node?
Thanks for your help!
