Restoring snapshot from one cluster to brand new deployment


I am using the Clastic cloud services and I was going through a practice exercise of restoring snapshot from one deployment to brand new deployment in case of any disaster.

The GUi is straight forward, but I am getting this error:

Unable to restore snapshot
[elasticsearch-snapshot:cloud-daily-snapshot-2023.05.08-rbh6w_0jr6kyxcdedcn2za/1Rv-QuweQy-2iWvYMoVSsg] cannot restore index [.apm-source-map] because an open index with same name already exists in the cluster. Either close or delete the existing index or restore the index under a different name by providing a rename pattern and replacement name

Look at the documentation, trying to close or delete .apm-source-map index messes up the deployments, so this is not the way.


Is the existing data still active? Has it been deleted?

There may be an accumulation of the same data.

have you tried to change the snapshoot name to change completely?

The cluster is brand new, there is only the default stuff created.

I was hoping to be able to recreate an existing cluster on top of a new cluster. Ideally, I wouldn't have to rename stuff. That being said, the message doesn't tell me what items should be rename. Is there a more verbose error message I can get?
