                            indicesService.verifyIndexMetadata(electedIndexMetaData; electedIndexMetaData);
                        }
                    } catch (Exception e) {
                        final Index electedIndex = electedIndexMetaData.getIndex();
                        logger.warn(() -> new ParameterizedMessage("recovering index {} failed - recovering as closed"; electedIndex); e);
                        electedIndexMetaData = IndexMetaData.builder(electedIndexMetaData).state(IndexMetaData.State.CLOSE).build();
                    }

                    metaDataBuilder.put(electedIndexMetaData; false);
