AWS elasticsearch EC2 Discovery, cant find other nodes


(Mark Conlin) #1

My objective is to create a elasticsearch cluster in AWS using EC2 discovery.

I have 3 instances each running elasticsearch. I have provided each instance a IAM role which allows them to describe ec2 data. Each instance is inside the security group "sec-group-elasticsearch"

The nodes start but do not find each other (logs below).

I can telnet from one node to another using private dns and port 9300.

Reference
eg. telnet from node A->B works and B->A works.
telnet ip-xxx-xxx-xx-xxx.vpc.fakedomain.com 9300

iam role for each instance

{
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Action": [
                "ec2:DescribeInstances"
            ],
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Resource": [
                "*"
            ]
        }
    ],
    "Version": "2012-10-17"
}

sec group rules

Inbound
Custom TCP Rule TCP 9200 - 9400 0.0.0.0/0

Outbound
All traffic allowed

elasticsearch.yml

bootstrap.mlockall: false
cloud.aws.region: us-east
cluster.name: my-ec2-elasticsearch
discovery: ec2
discovery.ec2.groups: sec-group-elasticsearch
discovery.ec2.host_type: private_dns
discovery.ec2.ping_timeout: 30s
discovery.zen.minimum_master_nodes: 2
discovery.zen.ping.multicast.enabled: false
http.port: 9200
network.host: ec2:privateDns
node.data: false
node.master: true
transport.tcp.port: 9300

On startup each instance logs like so:

It should be discovery.type: ec2
