I've run an errant command, and accidentally deleted all
*/translog/translog.ckp files for my single-node cluster. This occurred during the upgrade process from ES 1.7.3 to ES 2.0.0.
I managed to keep a backup of the actual
*.tlog files for all indices, but I don't have a copy of the checkpoint files.
I'm OK with a small amount of dataloss in each index; the alternative seems to be full loss of all of my indices. Is there a way to disable checking the translogs entirely, in order to trigger a recovery attempt? This isn't production, but I'd like to make sure if something similar goes wrong on our production cluster there would be a way to recover.
Any help appreciated.
