Could anyone help on below scenario.
I am using elasticsearch and Kibana of v8.0.0 docker image and wanted to use beats of v8.12.0 of windows (not docker)
I do have docker images for beats on few linux machine where the v8.12.0 of beats (i.e is docker) works with v8.0.0 of ELK via using "allow_older_version: true"
But when i use same "allow_older_version" for windows beatsv8.12.0 it won't work with elk v8.0.0
How can i make v8.12.0 of windows beats work with ELK 8.12.0
Welcome to the community! Can you share what you mean by it won't work? Are you seeing a particular error in your metricbeat or elasticsearch logs?
Is there a particular reason you want to use a later version of beats? Is upgrading your ELK stack an option? As listed in the documentation, ideally you would be on the same or higher version of Metricbeat:
For optimal experience, Metricbeat only connects to instances that are at least on the same version as the Beat. The check can be disabled by setting
Let us know the error and we'll do our best to help!
Thanks @carly.richmond for reply. It is working with the allow_older_version check I might have done something wrong earlier. Thanks again
