Nutshell: I cannot view the created index with named network.bind_host.
I have setup elasticsearch and then created two indexes. Have no issues and can view/query the index and data using head plugin.
http://localhost:9200/_plugin/head/ --- This worked well
Then I have learned that in order to access elasticsearch from a different applications, I have to expose it by naming network.bind_host.
Now I am able to access elasticsearch.
The problem comes when I create additional indexes after naming network.bind_host. The newly created indexes are not viewable in head plug-in, and not sure if the index was created also. Have checked the data folder, but could not find any folder for the newly created index.
