NFS Gateway errors


(Christopher Burkey-2) #1

Hello,

We are deploying ElasticSearch for an exciting project at a
University. It has gone well with just a couple of errors.

One of the errors has to do with the gateway that is stored on a an
NFS file server.

[WARN] [Professor Power] [system][0] failed to obtain snapshot lock,
ignoring snapshot
org.elasticsearch.ElasticSearchIllegalStateException: failed to obtain
snapshot lock [NativeFSLock@/export/home/apps/hbs/local/localhost/WEB-

Looks like there is a possible solution:

gateway.fs.snapshot_lock = false

Now we will just need to keep an eye out for split brain condition.

Why are you using NFS gateway? I recommend using the (default) local
gateway.
