Please format your code, logs or configuration files using </> icon as explained in this guide and not the citation button. It will make your post more readable.

Or use markdown style like:


This is the icon to use if you are not using markdown format:

There's a live preview panel for exactly this reasons.

Lots of people read these forums, and many of them will simply skip over a post that is difficult to read, because it's just too large an investment of their time to try and follow a wall of badly formatted text.
If your goal is to get an answer to your questions, it's in your interest to make it as easy to read and understand as possible.
Please update your post.

Also please share the full logs.

it's done, thanks

Your ES server has not started. You may want to check / post rest of the start up logs.

There is one issue I noticed in your yaml. discovery.type value should be single-node not single.node


Thanks Vinayak_Sapre,

in /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml
I keep only this option:

xpack.security.enabled: true
root@xxxx:/home/user# systemctl restart elasticsearch
Job for elasticsearch.service failed because a timeout was exceeded.
See "systemctl status elasticsearch.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

By startup log I meant entries in /var/log/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.log during ES start up.

Sorry for the confusion.

I add this option:

sudo vim /usr/lib/systemd/system/elasticsearch.service


sudo sytemctl reload-daemon
systemctl restart elasticsearch

It works perfectly now,
this is the link of the solution,
