Curator problem


I have just installed curator 5.4 (elasticsearch-curator-5.4.1-1.x86_64.rpm) but I can't launch anything.

I created simple config file below :

Remember, leave a key empty if there is no value. None will be a string,

# not a Python "NoneType"

hosts: XXX
port: 9200
use_ssl: False
ssl_no_validate: False
timeout: 30
master_only: False

loglevel: DEBUG
logfile: /data.di/curator/logs
logformat: default
blacklist: ['elasticsearch', 'urllib3']

The error I have when I launch curator_cli :

curator --help
Traceback (most recent call last):

Anyone has already had this problem ?


Yes, it's a known issue. You need to upgrade your OpenSSL package to 1.0.2, and then Curator will work.

The next release will hopefully add this dependency properly, preventing what you're experiencing.

I did it. It's now working well.
