The Store SMB plugin works around for a bug in Windows SMB and Java on windows.
This plugin can be installed using the plugin manager:
sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin install store-smb
The plugin must be installed on every node in the cluster, and each node must be restarted after installation.
This plugin can be downloaded for offline install from https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch-plugins/store-smb/store-smb-5.6.3.zip.
The plugin can be removed with the following command:
sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin remove store-smb
The node must be stopped before removing the plugin.
