Restore index from another cluster

Hi, I'm struggle trying to restore an index from a snapshot to another cluster. The steps I've following are:

  • make a backup of the index on the original cluster
  • create the snapshot repository on the other cluster, just a copy of the original cluster:
    "backup" : {
    "type" : "fs",
    "settings" : {
    "compress" : "true",
    "location" : "/var/elasticsearch/backup"
  • copy the content of /var/elasticsearch/backup of the original cluster to the another one
  • restart the elasticsearch

Afterwards, I run on the target cluster:
curl -XGET'
but it doesn't contain anything:
"snapshots" :

Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've removed the repository and created it again, restarted the elasticsearch but the same issue.

Could you please help me with this issue?

Thanks in advance!

Did you set the repo in the config, as per
