I had mistakenly made a very large index: 1 shard of 406 GB (1.8b documents).
Then I split it into 16 shards hoping to get ~25GB sizes.
I think the new index triggered a template, since it also got 1 replica shard.
The split takes a very long time. I think it's been 5 days and it still wasn't finished.
I was running out of space, so I tried disabling replica shards.
I checked the _cat/recovery API and it showed no active recoveries.
Now it looks like this:

Is there any way to force it to re-hash the index? Or do I have to start over?
