Can't get X-Pack/Monitoring to work with basic license


(Jérémy Lecour) #1

Hi friends,

I've just installed an Elasticsearch 6.2.4 cluster on with 4 nodes, with Kibana 6.2.4 and X-Pack (in Elasticsearch and Kibana). I've changed the license to "basic" and disabled "xpack.security".
A "GET _xpack/license" returns that my license is valid.

My issue is that I don't have the "Monitoring" tab in Kibana, I don't have a "Elasticsearch" section in the "Management" tab.

I've obviously restarted the various processes many times.

What did I do wrong ?

Thanks for your help.

@Jeremy_Lecour this is interesting.
With a basic license we should have local monitoring able to capture without issues.

Can you share the elasticsearch.yml && is the yaml the same across the four nodes?

Hi, thank you for looking at my issue.

Here is my configuration. Everything is exactly the same with the four nodes.

# cat /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml

cluster.name: elastic1
node.name: ${HOSTNAME}
node.attr.box_type: warm
path.data: /var/lib/elasticsearch
path.logs: /var/log/elasticsearch
bootstrap.memory_lock: true
network.host: [_global_, _site_, _local_]
network.publish_host: _site_
discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ["10.0.0.10","10.0.0.11","10.0.0.12"]
discovery.zen.minimum_master_nodes: 3
xpack.license.self_generated.type: "basic"
xpack.security.enabled: false
xpack.monitoring.enabled: true

# /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch-plugin list
x-pack
    x-pack-core
    x-pack-deprecation
    x-pack-graph
    x-pack-logstash
    x-pack-ml
    x-pack-monitoring
    x-pack-security
    x-pack-upgrade
    x-pack-watcher

# cat /etc/kibana/kibana.yml

server.host: "127.0.0.1"
server.basePath: "/kibana"
logging.dest: /var/log/kibana/kibana.log
logging.quiet: true

# /usr/share/kibana/bin/kibana-plugin list
x-pack@6.2.4

I've tried to install a fresh new cluster with only one node for Elasticsearch and Kibana.
I've set "xpack.license.self_generated.type" to "basic" before installing the plugins.
I've installed the x-pack plugin for ES and Kibana, then added my licence.

I still don't have the monitoring tab in Kibana :frowning:
