Indices status shows yellow

what yellow status means in indices?


is this on a single node? or in a cluster ?

If a single node (ie your dev machine), yellow is normal.

Yes , It's a single node cluster .
But my main intention is upgrade from 1.7 to 5.5.
So I have to do reindex in 2.x and move to 5.5.
Migrate plugin is not working if index status is yellow.
Any suggestions on this.

I think we got around this by setting the number of replicas to 0 on test machines when creating the indexes.. not sure if you can change this post putting data in there?

I think your indices are configured with one or more Recplicas.

Set index.number_of_replicas : 0 and you will be green.

If elastic has replicas that it is not able to allocate to a Node it will show status Yellow.
