I'm following along in your "Fundamentals of Securing Elasticsearch" tutorial as part of your "learn-at-home" initiaitve but doing so from my own environment. I'm currently confused on a couple concepts concerning the process of setting up a second node.
My environment is ELK (Kibana & Elasticsearch) running on a EC2 instance (with a trial license) with just one node configured as of now. The tutorial requires at least 2 nodes so I have created a second EC2 instance to host this node. Next I have installed the elasticsearch via the RPM method on this second EC2 instance.
- Do I need to setup another trail license for the second node or load my existing trial license (that's already loaded on the first node) on the second node too?
- I assume I have to setup built-in users again whenever I create new nodes on a different system (e.g. EC2)?
I'm just slightly confused on how many installation/configuration steps get repeated when you setup additional nodes on other systems if that makes sense.
