Error Encountered in Weaviate Vector Search

Hi Team,


I encountered an error while attempting vector search after restoring the index (backed up with the same Weaviate version) from the S3 backup. The error message indicates an issue with object vector search at index class_name, suggesting cleanup is needed.

{‘data’: {‘Get’: {‘class_name’: None}}, ‘errors’: [{‘locations’: [{‘column’: 6, ‘line’: 1}], ‘message’: ‘explorer: get class: vector search: object vector search at index class_name: shard class_name_0g4KaFE5oZ4V: vector search: entrypoint was deleted in the object store, it has been flagged for cleanup and should be fixed in the next cleanup cycle’, ‘path’: [‘Get’, ‘Class_name’]}]}

Server Setup Information

  • Weaviate Server Version: 1.22.0
  • Deployment Method: Docker
  • Number of Running Nodes: 1
  • Client Language and Version: Python client (v3.25.3)

Any additional Information

Search with where condition functions properly.
Also want to mention that, after initially restoring the index, we proceeded to delete all data, reindex it, and then backed it up again. The error occurred following the restoration of this new backup in a new deployment.

Your help is much appreciated.


Hi @Iammsd07 !

I believe this might be the same bug:

At least the error messages and object deletion is similar.

Can you relate your issue with this one?
