The Elasticsearch keystore [C:\elasticsearch-7.17.0\elasticsearch-7.17.0\config\elasticsearch.keystore] format is too new. Are you trying to downgrade? You should delete and recreate it in order to downgrade

I am currently using windows server 2019. i was trying to upgrade ES from 7.16.2 to 8.3, then i got error to upgrade first to 7.17. i have upgraded it to 7.17 but now when i run elasticsearch.bat file its giving this error, how can i delete and recreate elastic keystore in windows

Please don't post pictures of text, logs or code. They are difficult to read, impossible to search and replicate (if it's code), and some people may not be even able to see them :slight_smile:
