Does Elastic Search support multiple operating systems?
I am in a position where I want to spin up an ES cluster - preferably on Linux. We do not yet have a corporate image for Linux (although one is being developed now).
If I were to spin up a 3master, 2client, 4*data cluster on Windows Server 2016 and then "swap" nodes one-by-one once we have a working Linux Image - would this be supported?
My intention would be to:
- stand up a 5th data node on Linux and then decommission the 1st Windows Server
- stand up a 6th, decommission 2nd
- 7th - 3rd
- 8th - 4th
- (then client nodes)
- (then master nodes)
Given that Elastic Search works on both Windows and Linux - is there any reason why this wouldn't work or wouldn't be supported?
