We installed ES on windows VM and run ES as auto-start windows service.
Recently, one of our VM restarted after windows auto update, and the ES service on the VM failed to start up due to timeout issue.
Following is the log we got:
A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Elasticsearch 1.7.1 (elasticsearch-service-x64) service to connect.
The Elasticsearch 1.7.1 (elasticsearch-service-x64) service failed to start due to the following error: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
Any suggestion on how to avoid such issue?
