I am setting up my first multi node cluster.
I only made it running, when the node.name equals to the hostname. It did not work when I said:
cluster.name: multinode node.name: 0
I had 3 servers using this type of naming convention (0 to 2). During cluster bootstrap the nodes have not been able to discover themself when I set
cluster.initial_master_nodes to following value:
["multinode-es-0", "multinode-es-1", "multinode-es-2"]
I expected that elasticsearch to discover any nodes on the given hostnames which are part of the same cluster.name.
I only made it running when setting node.name to hostname.
Was my assumption incorrect or did I just do a mistake during configuration?
