Restart cluster

DEPRECATED (Scheduled to be removed in the next major version): Restarts the Elasticsearch cluster. When you restart an active cluster, the existing plan is used and a cluster_reboot is applied. A cluster_reboot issues an Elasticsearch restart command, then waits for the command to complete. When you restart an inactive cluster, the most recent successful plan is applied.
