Remote reindex from 1.3.9 to 5.5

I want to migrate elasticsearch from 1.3.9 to 5.5 . So i decided to use the second option from the doc.

Install a 5.5 , create index( with settings and mapping) and do a remote reindex.

Actually i don't have any error but i still have in my new server o created index after doing the reindex.

Here the result : "took": 30, "timed_out": false, "total": 0, "updated": 0, "created": 0, "deleted": 0, "batches": 0, "version_conflicts": 0, "noops": 0, "retries": { "bulk": 0, "search": 0 }, "throttled_millis": 0, "requests_per_second": -1, "throttled_until_millis": 0, "failures": [] }

Do you have any idea to resolve or which log to look at ?

The command

"source": {
"remote": {
"host": "http://localhost:9200",
"username": "elastic",
"password": "changeme"
"index": "myindex"
"dest": {
"index": "mynewindex"

I am trying this migration path
upgrade from 1.7.x to 2.x

then to 5.x

Still stumbling in the dark, but just in case it helps you

It's not going to be simple either way unfortunately. :frowning: I tried to upgrade from "2.4.2" to 5.0 when it first came out using the above mentioned steps, but it would always fail on geo_point fields. :frowning:

Thanks for your feedback

ok for me I believe I am much closer to a solution than where I started. When doing the upgrade using this doc

It will tell you in detail the error you are encountering in the log directory. using that I am now closer to resolving my upgrade.

In case it helps anyone
