Configuring back-up repositories for Elasticsearch

Config the back-up repository setting on each Elasticsearch node in the HCL Connections deployment.

Before you begin

This task only applies to a stand-alone Elasticsearch deployment. If you installed Elasticsearch as part of the Component Pack for Connections, skip this task.

About this task

For a multiple-node deployment, make sure that each node uses the same path and that the back-up directory is mounted to the same storage (for example, to the same NFS share folder).


  1. Modify the following configuration file: /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml
  2. Add the path.repo setting; for example: path.repo: ["Path_to_local_backup_directory"]
  3. Save and close the file.
  4. Restart the Elasticsearch service on all nodes.
