Elasticsearch helm chart, are privileged containers necessary?

Hello,

I am trying to deploy the elasticsearch helm chart onto a PKS cluster. I keep running into issues since the PodSecurityPolicy that is in effect does not allow for privileged containers.

Is there a way to run the elasticsearch helm chart without the need of using a privileged container?

Thanks!

Hi @nfickas,

privileged mode is only used for sysctlInitContainer. You can disable it with value sysctlInitContainer.enabled=false.
