Cannot connect to the Elasticsearch cluster currently configured for Kibana

(Joan) #1

I am not able to connect Kibana with elasticsearch. Here is my elasticsearch file config: laboratori node-1 /var/lib/elasticsearch
path.logs: /var/log/elasticsearch

and my kibana.yml has nothing (everything is commented).

If I try a curl to the elastisearch url, it responds:
"name" : "node-1",
"cluster_name" : "laboratori",
"cluster_uuid" : "fNCQ7ByMRfaDLqe0wyQv6g",
"version" : {
"number" : "6.4.0",
"build_flavor" : "default",
"build_type" : "rpm",
"build_hash" : "595516e",
"build_date" : "2018-08-17T23:18:47.308994Z",
"build_snapshot" : false,
"lucene_version" : "7.4.0",
"minimum_wire_compatibility_version" : "5.6.0",
"minimum_index_compatibility_version" : "5.0.0"
"tagline" : "You Know, for Search"

but the Kibana says "Cannot connect to the Elasticsearch cluster currently configured for Kibana."

And if I check the kibana.stdout I see the message:

{"type":"log","@timestamp":"2018-09-17T18:17:05Z","tags":["warning","elasticsearch","admin"],"pid":3768,"message":"Unable to revive connection: http://localhost:9200/"}
{"type":"log","@timestamp":"2018-09-17T18:17:05Z","tags":["warning","elasticsearch","admin"],"pid":3768,"message":"No living connections"}

Could someone help me?

withdrawn? Why? It is still and issue


Can you post your entire elasticsearch.yml and kibana.yml configurations? Also, are they both on the same host (single node)?

(Joan) #6

Yes, they are on the same node.

[root@demo ~]# grep -v ^# /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml laboratori node-1 /var/lib/elasticsearch
path.logs: /var/log/elasticsearch

The kibana.yml is all commented, so no parameter setted.

Thanks and regards

Hi all!

I checked the /var/log/kibana/kibana.stdout and I found the following error

{"type":"log","@timestamp":"2018-09-20T14:24:40Z","tags":["error","elasticsearch","admin"],"pid":10119,"message":"Request error, retrying\nHEAD http://loc
alhost:9200/ => connect ECONNREFUSED"}

I did not understand why the localhost was translated to my IP I went to /etc/hosts and changed the resolution to Now it works like a charm
