I have a simple setup with four ES nodes (192.168.88.140-143) in
cluster. The nodes are started at almost the same time and shortly
after client nodes are started. The client nodes create one index with
12 shards (and 1 replica) and start indexing documents into those. It
I look at the ES cluster through elasticsearch-head. I see that there
are no shards assigned to one of the nodes (the one at
192.168.88.140), and that node appear on a yellow background in
elasticsearch-head - the other 3 nodes appear on a white background.
Besides that I do not notice any problem with 192.168.88.140, would
explain why it does not get shards assigned.
Can anyone help explain why 192.168.88.140 does not get its fair share
of the shards?
