Azure Repository Plugin access denied to elasticsearch.keystore

(Brandon Michael Hunter) #1

I've installed Azure Repository plugin into my 6.4 ES instance on my Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS box which is hosted inside of a VM in Azure. I'm trying to perform backups and restores using a storage account I created in azure. When I try to set the account and key values I get the following error from the console:
"Exception in thread 'main' java.nio.file.AccessDeniedException: /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.keystore".
I've tried running on sudo and still the same error.

Provided below is an the error when I try to set the account value from a txt file and the permissions set on the /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.keystore, /etc/elasticsearch and /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin folders.

What are the permissions of /etc/elasticsearch (not the contents)?

See the images above.
The first one is the permissions on the file permissions within the /etc/elasticsearch folder and the second is the folder permissions for elasticsearch.

I'd resolved my issue by updating the following permissions on the elasticsearch.keystore file. Tell me if this is the right way to do it..

sudo chmod a+rwx /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.keystore - All Users
sudo chmod u+rwx /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.keystore - Group
sudo chmod g+rwx /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.keystore - Owner
