I cannot get Elasticsearch to start after manually installing Marvel agent 2.2.0. - HELP

(Tanguy) #2


Can you please provide your version of elasticsearch and the command you used to install marvel?


(Jill Eurich) #3

elasticsearch 2.2.0. For Marvel I downloaded marvel-agent-2.2.0.zip and license-2.2.0.zip.
I created a directory called /ma/test_01/es-vader/plugins and unzipped the files there.
I added the following line /ma/test_01/config/elasticsearch.yml file
path.plugins: /ma/test_01/es-vader/plugins

Am I missing a PATH variable somewhere? This is running on solaris 5.10 sparc server.

You shouldn't manually extract thins like that.

Use the offline procedure - https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/marvel/current/installing-marvel.html#offline-installation
