I am not sure if this is the correct forum so please forgive me if not. I am trying to wrap my head around the elasticsearch keystore.
I set up some settings, I removed some settings, I added a new setting which I found was not correct. now I cannot even get the elasticsearch-keystore list command to work. Is there a way to reset it or what other things are depending on it?

You're going to need to be a bit more specific.

What exactly is broken right now?

  • what command are you running?
  • what error are you getting?

im not sure what is broken. when I try to run

bin/elasticsearch-keystore list

I get ....

I found an error in a log file and I am trying to remove this setting from the keystore.

Is there some other way to "clear" the elastic keystore of values?

You can simply delete the file and recreate it with elasticsearch-keystore create if that's what you want.

This looks like a problem in your elasticsearch.yml config file.
Check line 69 - it looks like you've made a mistake there.

Wow that error creeped in there. Thank you guys so much guys. Looks like I am getting it moving now.
