I am trying to work on snapshots and restore on ES 5.6
I was having a similar issue on my cluster.
I am using a 5 node cluster with 1 master and 5 datanodes.
While restoring I am getting nosuchfileexception.
It is going to find the snap-****.dat file inside index-name directorypresent inside indices, but the file is not present at that location. But at the master node the .dat file is present at my path.repo location.
Is the (.dat)file not created inside the index-name directory because the folder is not mounted.
Also can you please explain which directory has to be mounted. I have same path.repo on all the nodes. Is it the master node directory whose path.repo location has to be mounted on rest 4 nodes. Can you please explain this in detail.
