      Workaround

      For the few customers that experienced this issue, the following steps helped resolve it after it started:

      1. Stop NXRM
      2. Move the existing corrupt \${karaf.data}/elasticsearch directory out of the way.
      3. Start NXRM
      4. Create and run a task "Repair - Rebuild repository search" on all repositories
      5. Create and run a task "Repair Rebuild repository browse" on all repos

      Expected

      Diagnose and provide guidance to prevent the issue.
