While upgrading from version 6.5.4 to 7.0.1, I forgot I had a very old index created with elastic 5.6. As I am not in production, I haven't snapshots ....
When I launched version 7.0.1 : I had first an error because of this old index. So I changed my elastic configuration to make it only listening on localhost and avoid bootstrap checks.
With this configuration, this old index only generates warning.
In order to clean every thing and go back listening on the actual IP address of my node, I wanted to go back to old version 6.5.4 in order to remove the old index.
However, I couldn't do it : When running 6.5.4 it now tells me that it can't read the global state of my cluster : apparently there's a new field in 7.0 that prevents older versions to read the global state file : <ES_HOME>/data/nodes/0/_state/global-1819.st
Of course, when I'm using version 7.0 an XGET on the old index tells me that this index is not found.
Is there a way to remove this index using version 7.0 ?
In order for me to go back listening on all IP address.
Thank you for your help.
