Moving a single snapshot from repo to a different machine?


#1

Hi,

I want to use snapshots to do a daily backup of our .kibana index.
So I created a repo and created a few snapshots (snapshot_1, snapshot_2, snapshot_3)

Now I would like to export only the latest snapshot to another server / single node instance.
The filesystem is not human readable. I did not find any folder named like snapshot_1, etc.

So what's the easiest way to move a specific snapshot from the repo to a different machine?

Thanks, Andreas

You can't.

A snapshot is referencing a set of file which can have been generated by a previous snapshot.

You should create a new repo on the other machine which points to the directory where you stored the snapshots on the first cluster.

ok, thanks,

Than I will try to copy the whole repo. As long only the .kibana index is backed up, it should be small enough.

If your are using 5.x then it's easier to use reindex from remote IMO.
