Could not start Kibana after install X-Pack

I installed X-Pack witn the command ./bin/kibana-plugin install x-pack
And I launched the Elasticsearch and Kibana,the Elasticsearch started successfully but Kibana failed.

the Kibana logs are as follow:
[XXX@foxbert bin]$ ./kibana
log [13:08:47.863] [info][optimize] Optimizing and caching bundles for ml, stateSessionStorageRedirect, status_page, timelion, graph, monitoring, login, logout, dashboardViewer, apm and kibana. This may take a few minutes

Do I need to uninstall the x-pack from kibana?
What should I do?


Did you also install X-Pack on Elasticsearch ? You need to install X-Pack in all of the components of the stack. See an overview of the procedure here
You would need to install x-pack in Elasticsearch too and perform the basic configuration before the rest of the troubleshooting can continue, but if you run into additional issues afterwards please also share the following in your update:

  • What is your OS ?
  • The lines in kibana.yml that are not commented out
  • Log output from /var/log/kibana/kibana.log

Yes,I have installed X-Pack on my Elasticsearch. I deployed my ES on the cloud

server.My OS is Linux withCentOS7.4.

It 's very strange that I can' t find the kibana.log in the/var/log/. There is nokibana folder in my directory.

I put kibana uninstall and reinstall the time, but had a new problem:
[root@foxbert bin]# ./kibana-plugin install x-pack
Found previous install attempt. Deleting...
Attempting to transfer from x-pack
Attempting to transfer from

what should I do?

It looks as if your VM doesn't have enough memory for X-Pack to complete the installation. This has been reported here and here and both times the issue was that the VM did not have enough available ram.

Please use a VM with adequate resources ( > 2GB of RAM ).
