Elasticsearch 5.0.1 fails to start on AWS with discovery-ec2: BindException[Cannot assign requested address]


(Sylrouss) #1

Hi friends,

With the following elasticsearch.yaml:
cluster.name: ***
node.name: ${HOSTNAME}

cloud:
    aws:
        region: eu-west-1

discovery:
    type: ec2

network:
    host: _ec2

discovery.zen.minimum_master_nodes: 1
discovery.zen.ping_timeout: 10s

Dockerfile:
FROM elasticsearch:5.0
RUN /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch-plugin install discovery-ec2
COPY elasticsearch.yml /usr/share/elasticsearch/config/
COPY log4j2.properties /usr/share/elasticsearch/config/
USER elasticsearch
CMD ["/usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch"]

Elasticsearch starting logs (DEBUG level):

Any ideas?


Elasticsearch 5.0.1 fails to be set as a cluster on AWS
(David Pilato) #2

You are running in a Docker container, right?

If so, you can't assign the _ec2_ address I think as the Docker network address is not the private IP address assigned by EC2.

I'm not a Docker user so can't tell more but this is my guess at least.

OK, it makes sense :slight_smile:
Using site makes it works, standalone.

Then, to create a cluster, which elasticsearch.yml should be used to ensure master/slaves can join themselves using AWS/Docker?
