How to force unallocated shards to get allocated?

Hi :slight_smile:

I have a 3 node cluster that hit a disk watermark. I fixed the disk space
issue, but now I have about 30 shards (both primaries and replicas) that
are unassigned, and just sitting there. How can I get ES to "wake up" and
allocate them?

Thank you!
