Warning Enhanced Search


Well-known member
I get this error from DigitalPoint Search's little status box. Note this just shows the status on the actual elasticsearch, not digitalpoint's thing. It shows this:

primary shards are allocated but replicas are not

Is that a concern? What does it mean?

Where are you seeing that error? I'm confused. It sounds like it's coming from an add-on, so I don't know what it's reading or what it's checking for that. The add-on author would be best placed to clarify.

ElasticSearch is designed for use with multiple servers. That message just means you only have a single ES node (basically every shard is allocated, but your ES configuration says you want more than 1 copy of data, but it has no where to put that extra data).
