Terminating a _restore


(Roger Holenweger) #1

Hello all,
i am using snapshot and restore functionality as a backup strategy.
i have run into a situation where the latest restore process is not terminating anymore.

Does anybody have any advice how to kill a non-terminating restore?

Thanks, roger

PS: using ES 2.3.3

Hi Roger,

You will need to delete the indices being restored in order to "delete" the restore operation. See here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/guide/current/_restoring_from_a_snapshot.html#_canceling_a_restore

Hopefully you have other snapshot backups from which you can restore those indices? It would also be useful for you to dig into why the restore is stuck. Looking at the output of the /_cat/recovery API would be helpful here.
