Move specific shard to a different index


(ElasticSearch Users mailing list) #1

Hi,

For the below scenario:
Assume that I am allocating exactly similar indices (with different name)
to different ElasticSearch nodes. Every index can have multiple shards.

At some time, I add another node to the existing cluster. Now, I use the
index template to create the same mapping schema on the new node.

Will ElasticSearch help to rebalance the shards to the new index on the new
node? I guess not since it is not part of the Cluster metadata and I will
have specified the node in the index settings.

Or can I programmatically move a specific shard to the new index? Is there
a provision to do that?

Please let me know. Thanks,

Thanks,
Sandeep
