Elasticsearch bootstrap check

I'm trying to create an elasticcluster. the nodes are setup in two seperate servers. my network and transport details are as follows:

http.port: 9200
transport.tcp.port: 9300

when i try to start the node, it is displaying the following error.

ERROR: [2] bootstrap checks failed. You must address the points described in the following [2] lines before starting Elasticsearch.
bootstrap check failure [1] of [2]: max file descriptors [65335] for elasticsearch process is too low, increase to
at least [65535]
bootstrap check failure [2] of [2]: max virtual memory areas vm.max_map_count [262114] is too low, increase to at least [262144]

Im using Linux and Elasticversion 7.17. Not sure why this issue happens even though the criteria is met for bootstrapping.

They are not. 65335 is less than 65535, and 262114 is less than 262144.

Thanks David for pointing this out. Is there any way we can bypass these bootstrap checks for multi node elastic cluster?

No, you will need to adjust your system config.
