Removing aborted snapshot

Thanks in advance for the help

My problem is that I tried to delete a snapshot during execution and now it is labeled as both aborted and in progress. This prevents me from executing any new snapshots, as it returns me an error of concurrent snapshot execution.

Furthermore, the delete api does not work when I attempt to delete the aforementioned snapshot. I get an error 504, could not connect.

I am currently running ES on AWS with two nodes.

In your experience, what can be done to fix this?

When I run GET /_snapshot/backups/201804/_status, it tells me it is aborted. When I run other commands, I am told that it is in progress

Hi @Jonny_Glazier,

I would try a rolling restart (restarting nodes one by one), or a full restart if the rolling restart doesn't solve the issue.

Check also Snapshot in progress for long time. How do I delete it?
