Snapshot restore across versions?

(Megha Meshram) #1

Is it possible to restore snapshots to a different version of ES cluster? Is this a recommended strategy for doing version upgrades to a standby cluster and using restore snapshots on it?

You can restore a snapshot from an older version to a newer one, but not vice versa.

It's one of the safest ways to do an upgrade, yes.
