Bound or publishing to a non-loopback or non-link-local address

I am having a real tricky time getting the simplest of nodes running. I have the following two configs ( they were copied from another cluster running in the company and the appropriate parts changed )

node 1 "es-bigdata"
http.port: 9200
transport.tcp.port: 9300 ${HOSTNAME}-UAT "/local/portfolio-apps/elastic/elasticdata"
path.logs: "/local/portfolio-apps/elastic/elasticlogs" ["", ""]

node 2 "es-bigdata"
http.port: 9200
transport.tcp.port:9300 ${HOSTNAME}-UAT "/local/portfolio-apps/elastic/elasticdata"
path.logs: "/local/portfolio-apps/elastic/elasticlogs" ["", ""]

I keep getting
bound or publishing to a non-loopback or non-link-local address, enforcing bootstrap checks

getting the standard loop back error

This is my first foray with ES and it has not been pleasant . Have I missed something in the above configs .

I see the 9200 and 9300 increment by one for every node in the cluster and also stay the same . Is there a good doc / guideline on this

any pointers welcome
