I am working through the elastic lab 1.4. I am not using virtual lab, I am running mine locally.
For some reason I did not have the blogs_sql.conf when I installed Elastic. So, I found an example on the web, created the file, and put it into the datasets directory.
Now I am trying to run logstash with the following command from the lab manual
./logstash-7.8.0/bin/logstash -f datasets/blogs_sql.conf
I get a reflector error like this
An illegal reflective access operation has occurred
Also, I get a lot of output, but most errors are associated with permissions like the one below.
Error: unable to load /home/troy/elastic/postgresql-42.2.9.jar from :jdbc_driver_library, file not readable (please check user and group permissions for the path)
I have done a chmod on all the files, and the permissions should be fine. Please let me know if you have any ideas as to what the problem is.
