Elasticsearch 1.4.4-1 with Shield 1.0.1 on CentOS 6.6 - Authentication issue when running as service vs bin/elasticsearch

I am able to run bin/elasticsearch and authenticate just fine but whenever
I run elasticsearch as a service, I consistently receive the following
error:

{
"error" : "AuthenticationException[unable to authenticate user [rdeniro]
for REST request [/idx1?pretty]]",
"status" : 401
}

I made sure that the $ES_HOME/config/shield/ dir and files were all owned
by ES user and tried to dig down to see how the two startup methods differ.
Ultimately, it came down to something in
/etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml by comparing the two runtime
environments, but haven't been able to make much headway from there.

Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers,
Jason

It sounds like you may be running into an issue where when running as a
service the configuration directory is different that
$ES_HOME/config/shield. Please see
"Configuring your
environment" http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/shield/current/getting-started.html

Hi fmarchand,

I ended up not pursuing Shield any further after finding out how much the
licensing would cost, but this might solve your issue:

Hope that helps!

Cheers,
Jason

If you set the proper configuration directory in the environment variable
and run the esusers commands again, then your elasticsearch instance should
be accessible.

If you must remove Shield: bin/plugin --remove shield
