Elasticsearch not starting on ELK appliance
I just spun up a ELK server using the one click installer. When I open Kibana it tells me it’s unable to connect to elastic search. When I ssh into the box and attempt to start elasticsearch (
sudo service elasticsearch start) it falls into a loop printing “fail” over and over.
“`root@elk:~# sudo service elasticsearch start
- Starting Elasticsearch Server …fail! …fail! …fail! …fail! …fail! …fail! …fail! …fail! …fail! …fail!”`
I am completely new to ELK and just wanted to give it a spin. I guess for now I’ll just manually set it up on a Ubuntu Droplet.
Full Disclosure it is a 512MB Droplet.
