Snapshotting ElasticSearch on local FS (no NFS)

(Maniksurtani) #1

Has anyone tried this? Is this supposed to work? I've had issues with trying to run /_snapshot on a directory that isn't on a shared FS.

I get store location [/.../directory/.../] is not shared between node (… nodes … ) which suggests that NFS is required. Is it?

Error msg:



Yes, the "fs" repository type requires a shared file system to work, such as NFS. The documentation is available at:

Hope that helps.
