Can not login on kibana after upgrade to 6.3


(Shih Yu Lee) #1

The previous version I used was 6.24.
After I upgraded the elasticsearch and kibana to 6.3, the login is disable( can not input the username and password).

When I removed xpack.security.enabled: true in the elasticsearch.yml, It still don't work.

The only way enter the kibana is :
removed xpack.security.enabled: true in the elasticsearch.yml and
change the elasticsearch.username and elasticsearch.password to elasticsearch.username: elastic and elasticsearch.password: changeme.
However, the Login page disappeared after I did that.

it's weird because I used bin/elasticsearch-setup-passwords interactive to change all of ELK's password when I used 6.24 version.

How could I login on the kibana when I use xpack.security?

There's lots of things that might cause this, and it's not clear from your post exactly how you upgraded and what settings you are running with.

Regarding your upgrade:

  • How did you perform your upgrade?
  • Are you using the same data directory as you used on 6.2.4?
  • Did you change any configuration?

Can you connect to the Elasticsearch server using curl (or a similar tool)?

  • Does curl -uelastic http://localhost:9200/ work?

Check GET /_xpack on your elasticsearch server.

  • what license type is it reporting?
  • what does it report for the enabled & allowed states on the security feature?

  1. I used deb to upgrade
  2. I use the same data directory
  3. I don't change any configuration.
  4. the license I use is trial, and security is allowed. But I disabled the security because it's the only way to use kibana.
  5. When I input curl -uelastic http://localhost:9200/, it required the elastic password. And the result is connection refused

What do the Elasticsearch logs say?
