Cluster nodes don't see each other


Hi Guys,

we have installed elasticsearch (version 1.1.2 with plugin head) on a
server cluster consisting of 2 servers. The only configuration change was
defining of '' and ''. Both instances are running fine
but they don't see each other. Asking for the health or cluster state I see
only my own instance. I've increased the logging of discovery to 'ALL',
the relevant results are above.
Also data included in one node are not visible in the other one. Can someone say me what is wrong?

Many thanks,

Why such an old version? 1.1.X is no longer supported!


Because we work with redhat 5.8, the newest version could not be installed due to changed signature.

Now I've installed the version 1.3.2 on both cluster nodes. But the behaviour is the same. The data added to one node are not visible in the other one, the health request delivers just information about the own node.

Do you have an idea where is the mistake?

Sounds like they haven't clustered, what does your elasticsearch.yml look like?


First there were just two setting configured: and It didn't work.

Now we added the configuration for
and the nodes are connected now.

Nice to have a running system!
