Issues with ES 1.4 Status Red, Unassigned shards, etc

I recently began having issues with my ELK box after a rebuild to the
latest Beta and I have not been receiving logs like normal. Here is my
status and attempt to reassign a shard. Any help would be appreciated.

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_cluster/health?pretty=true'
"cluster_name" : "elasticsearch",
"status" : "red",
"timed_out" : false,
"number_of_nodes" : 1,
"number_of_data_nodes" : 1,
"active_primary_shards" : 101,
"active_shards" : 101,
"relocating_shards" : 0,
"initializing_shards" : 0,
"unassigned_shards" : 111

curl -XPOST -d '{ "commands" : [ { "allocate" : { "index" :
"logstash-2014.10.30", "shard" : 2, "node" : "My Node" } } ] }'
"error" : "ElasticsearchIllegalArgumentException[[allocate] allocation of
