I have a query that I have been unable to test as of yet.
I am setting up an elasticsearch service on my laptop and shipping logs from other servers.
As my laptop uses dynamic IP addresses, I was thinking of creating a CNAME DNS entry to my laptop. I would then set network.host in the elasticsearch.yml file to this DNS entry rather than specifying the IP address directly in case it changes every time I connect to Wifi.
Has anyone tried this before? Is this possible and wil it work? Unfortunately I can't test this for a few weeks so I would like to see if anyone else has managed this.
I'm really grateful for any help!
