Can you confirm that elastic has access to the directories referred to by these env variables:

  • ${LOG_DIR}
  • ${DATA_DIR}
  • ${CONF_DIR}

(Tk Cyber One) #3

Elasticsearch home directory

ES_HOME=/usr/share/elasticsearch

Elasticsearch Java path

JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.8.0_141

Elasticsearch configuration directory

CONF_DIR=/etc/elasticsearch

Elasticsearch data directory

DATA_DIR=/var/lib/elasticsearch

Elasticsearch logs directory

LOG_DIR=/var/log/elasticsearch

Elasticsearch PID directory

PID_DIR=/var/run/elasticsearch

Additional Java OPTS

ES_JAVA_OPTS="${LOG_DIR} -Edefault.path.data=${DATA_DIR} -Edefault.path.conf=${CONF_DIR}"

Configure restart on package upgrade (true, every other setting will lead to not restarting)

#RESTART_ON_UPGRADE=true

Elasticsearch.service: Can't open PID file /run/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.pid No such file or directory
(Ravi Shanker Reddy) #4

Try to create all the paths manually. Check your config (elasticsearch.yml) once. Even if it is not able to start try to run it as a process.


(poojagupta) #5

have you done any configuration changes in elasticsearch.yml file?
on which version you are working?


(Christian Dahlqvist) #6

Is there anything in the Elasticsearch logs?


(poojagupta) #7
