So I've found my definition of definitive and the elastic.io guides definition to be slightly divergent. As such I wondered if anyone here could help me get my backups sorted out?
Origionally I tried to get it to backup to a NAS using a Network File Share however every time I tried to run the backups I it stalled and I got Java blocked errors coming up on screen. Not to worry I thought there is an option to backup to HDFS here and that's a more logical & salable place to put it anyway! The definitive guide was a bit light on how to for this though.
After some searching I found I could install the necessary plugin with the following command
bin/plugin install elasticsearch/elasticsearch-repository-hdfs/2.2.0-hadoop2
When I tried to run this though I got an alert telling me
"ERROR: Plugin [repository-hdfs] is incompatible with Elasticsearch [2.4.1]. Was designed for version [2.2.0]"
seeing 2.2.0 in both the error and the command I executed I thought I saw a fix but there is no version 2.4.1-hadoop2 available so I'm now at a bit of a loss on how to go forward.
Any help would be appreciated.
