Elasticsearch ERROR: Failed to verify bootstrap password ---


after ii upgraded to platinum license and then reset the password in elasticsearch 7.0 (bin/elasticsearch-setup-passwords interactive). i could able to login in elastic user.

but i couldnt able to login using kibana user.

In browser shows "{"statusCode":403,"error":"Forbidden","message":"Forbidden"}"

shows below error:

[root@elastic1 elasticsearch]# bin/elasticsearch-setup-passwords interactive

Failed to authenticate user 'elastic' against http://192.168.x.x:9200/_security/_authenticate?pretty
Possible causes include:

  • The password for the 'elastic' user has already been changed on this cluster
  • Your elasticsearch node is running against a different keystore
    This tool used the keystore at /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.keystore
