Welcome to our community! :smiley:

It's not clear what your problem is sorry. Take a look at Dec 10th, 2022: [EN] Asking top notch technical questions to get you help quicker! and please update your post.

Also be aware that 5.X is super old, you.may not find anyone with knowledge that can assist you with a resolution.

Running only this commands will not start elasticsearch, it will just install it.

From the response you shared you have another elasticsearch running in the same machine that was installed using the .tar.gz file.

As you can see by this:

"build_flavor" : "oss",
"build_type" : "tar"

This means that the elasticsearch that answered your request is the oss distribution that was installed using the .tar.gz package.

HI Leandrojmp,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes you are right earlier the installation is done with the help of tar file but now it is done by directly downloading the package, and completely uninstall the old Elasticsearch. Is there any method with which this response can be fetched from the new installation.
