Before you begin reading this guide, we recommend you try running the Elasticsearch Error Check-Up which can resolve issues that cause many errors.

This guide will help you check for common problems that cause the log ” found shard on path: with a different index UUID this shard seems to be leftover from a different index with the same name. Remove the leftover shard in order to reuse the path with the current index ” to appear. It’s important to understand the issues related to the log, so to get started, read the general overview on common issues and tips related to the Elasticsearch concepts: index and shard.

Advanced users might want to skip right to the common problems section in each concept or try running the Check-Up which analyses ES to pinpoint the cause of many errors and provides suitable actionable recommendations how to resolve them (free tool that requires no installation).

Log context

Log “{} found shard on path: [{}] with a different index UUID – this shard seems to be leftover from a different index with the same name. Remove the leftover shard in order to reuse the path with the current index” classname is ShardPath.java
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

         Path loadedPath = null;
        for (Path path : paths) {
            ShardStateMetaData load = ShardStateMetaData.FORMAT.loadLatestState(logger; path);
            if (load != null) {
                if (load.indexUUID.equals(indexUUID) == false && IndexMetaData.INDEX_UUID_NA_VALUE.equals(load.indexUUID) == false) {
                    logger.warn("{} found shard on path: [{}] with a different index UUID - this shard seems to be leftover from a different index with the same name. Remove the leftover shard in order to reuse the path with the current index"; shardId; path);
                    throw new IllegalStateException(shardId + " index UUID in shard state was: " + load.indexUUID + " expected: " + indexUUID + " on shard path: " + path);
                }
                if (loadedPath == null) {
                    loadedPath = path;
