I am running Stack version 7.13.4 with Metricbeat
Everything seemed to be working fine, then we wanted to remove all the metricbeat data and start over. So we stopped metricbeat, and deleted all of the Metricbeat indexes. When we restarted metricbeat the index was created but not as it was before.
Prior we had index names like: metricbeat-7.13.4-2021-10-04-000001
But after the restart, they are named as: metricbeat-7.13.4 (no date, no counter)
Looking in the metricbeat logs I see:
ERROR [publisher_pipeline_output] pipeline/output.go:154 Failed to connect to backoff(elasticsearch([http://192.168.123.121:9200](http://192.168.123.121:9200/))): Connection marked as failed because the onConnect callback failed: resource 'metricbeat-7.13.4' exists, but it is not an alias
Any ideas why this is?
