Migrating from Elasticsearch to OpenSearch version 1.3.x

Versions (relevant - OpenSearch/Dashboard/Server OS/Browser):

Migrating Elastic Search 7.10.2 to OpenSearch 1.3.7

Describe the issue:

I have take a snapshot of Elastic Search and that snapshot is using to restore in OpenSearch. I am getting errors. Please suggest to solve this migration issue as soon as possible.


Relevant Logs or Screenshots:

Try restoring to a different name than “.kibana_1” then re-index it into the index name you want? Sounds like there is a mix of mapping issues and possibly older index, recently I had to re-index a few system level indices as a pre-req for an upgrade.

You need to reindex all the user indices, e.g. through a cross-cluster reindex or with a different name and then reindex to the correct user-index
