I am trying to clean up my ES and am using the following strategy:
1- Roll indices every day
2- Shrink indices not in use
3- Take backup of indices every month
This process works fine. The problem is when I try to restore an index from a shrunken index, the restored index never turns green and is stuck in the red state. I have read that restores on shrunken indices dont go well, but that was in an older version. I am using version 6.2 and I still see the problem.
Any ideas how to fix this?
