Replicated Buckets from Previous Install

New Member

This question is related to previous case 130465

After several issue with Hot and Warm bucket space I had to rebuild my cluster and in rebuilding I didn't realize that there was a unique reference per index so the new rebuild took new references per index. It has all been working, however, I now notice that the replicas, which are housed in the cold bucket volume location are not being rolled off as they appear to be named to the old index references

Peer 41v
OLD guid = 52CC719A-74AE-4400-9B2B-8B5807659408
NEW guid = 473195B7-3F01-433F-A4C4-EDCC948F1952

Peer 43v
OLD guid = A28F6DF7-1389-44BA-A20C-FE706296EA10
NEW guid = A3E51F2F-D379-4BB4-BFF0-C0E22875BF73

Number of buckets replicas in Cold on Peer 41v
502 52CC719A-74AE-4400-9B2B-8B5807659408
805 A28F6DF7-1389-44BA-A20C-FE706296EA10

As you can see there 502 and 805 associated with the old index references. I can search the data, which is useful but the volume is filling up and as these buckets don't appear to be being removed I believe I will hit an issue.

Will Splunk recognize these replicas and remove them even though they have the old index references, or do I have to manually delete them?

The cluster may not recognize the old references, so it has to be manually removed.
