Unassigned Shards, No Curl Access


(G T) #1

Hello,

MY ES cluster state is red and there are 4 unassigned shards. I have read a lot online about solutions to this problem, however they all use Curl commands. Due to my ES instance being on a client site, I can't use curl as when I try to, the connection is pushed externally and then blocked by the firewall. I would ideally like to resolve this issue without having to get the client to change anything. So my question is: Is there anyway to resolve unassigned shards without curl?
Please note I do have access to the backend of the Ubuntu VM that the ES instance is running on.

Regards,
G

Has anyone got any ideas? I still can't resolve the issue.

I solved the issue. The problem was: My VM was trying to use a proxy, so I just commented out the proxy setting in .bashrc, used the curl commands and then uncommented the proxy settings.
