Elastic search service is failing after installing the latest version 5.3.0


(Joel Hashman) #1

I'm having the same issue that others have reported on Windows. After I install the elasticsearch-service-x64 service using "elasticsearch-service.bat install" and then start the service it will start and then stop. The error below is what is in the logs. Running elasticsearch.bat manually gets elasticsearch up and running but getting the service running would be wonderful.

Can you provide the full command you're running and include the verbose output
