Remove disks from nodes



I have nodes that have two disks and I want to remove one disk from each. Is there some allocation API call that can move the indices to the other disk (or anywhere else on the cluster for that matter)? Maybe there's a way to manually mv the data around?

Most of these specific indices are not replicated so I think to workaround this I could maybe add a replica for them and then just pull the disks out of the cluster and let it restore everything on its own? My guess is that this would work but it would take a long time so I'm looking for a faster alternative.

Yes, that is the best option.
