Hi SonarQube team,

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hey there.

It looks like another process is holding onto the Elasticsearch index.

I would suggest:

  • Killing all running Java proceses on your machine
  • Deleting the /data/es8 folder from your SonarQube installation directory
  • Restarting
