Elasticsearch fails to start after elasticsearch.yml is changed

(Daniel Venzi) #1


i'm changing my elasticsearch.yml connfig so he can replicate data in other machines. The problem appear when im defining my path.data and path.logs, after i save the new paths and restart the service i get this error:

Elastic node1:

Elastic node2:

I dont think is a matter of permissions since i gave a 666 permission set to the data and logs directory.

What could be the problem?

Please dont post pictures, the text is not searchable. the path.data should be owned by elasticsearch and 666 is not correct. It should have 755 at a minimum so the owner (elasticsearch) can enter the directory and its subdirectories.
