Elasticserch does not run after installing Search Guard

ES nodes fail to start with floragunn search-guard installed deals with v1.x. I have these versions.

ES v2.4.1
SG v2.4.1.6
CentOS 7.2

Im able to run ES with SSL. I generated the certs/keys via the example script from Search Guard. Here is the info on the client cert that I generated

> openssl x509 -noout -subject -in kirk-signed.pem -text
subject= /C=US/L=Raleigh/O=client/OU=client/CN=kirk
        Version: 3 (0x2)
        Serial Number: 3 (0x3)
    Signature Algorithm: sha256WithRSAEncryption
        Issuer: DC=com, DC=example, O=Example Com Inc., OU=Example Com Inc. Signing CA, CN=Example Com Inc. Signing CA
            Not Before: Oct  6 14:47:01 2016 GMT
            Not After : Oct  6 14:47:01 2018 GMT
        Subject: C=US, L=Raleigh, O=client, OU=client, CN=kirk
        Subject Public Key Info:
            Public Key Algorithm: rsaEncryption
                Public-Key: (2048 bit)

If I understand correctly, I need to have the following line in my elasticsearch.yml file, correct?

# Enable SSL via Search Guard SSL plugin
# Enable HTTPS
searchguard.ssl.http.enabled: true
searchguard.ssl.http.keystore_filepath: node-0-keystore.jks
searchguard.ssl.http.keystore_password: pw
searchguard.ssl.http.truststore_filepath: truststore.jks
searchguard.ssl.http.truststore_password: pw

# Enable SSL between ES nodes
searchguard.ssl.transport.keystore_filepath: node-0-keystore.jks
searchguard.ssl.transport.keystore_password: pw
searchguard.ssl.transport.truststore_filepath: truststore.jks
searchguard.ssl.transport.truststore_password: pw
searchguard.ssl.transport.enforce_hostname_verification: false

# for Search Guard
  - "cn=kirk, ou=client, o=client, l=Raleigh, c=US"

searchguard.cert.oid: ''

But when I run sgadmin.sh, it just times out

> /usr/share/elasticsearch/plugins/search-guard-2/tools/sgadmin.sh -cd /etc/elasticsearch/ -ks kirk-keystore.jks -ts truststore.jks -nhnv -kspass pw -tspass pw

And I see these in elasticsearch.log

I followed SG installation docs.

What am I missing?

You will probably need to ask on the Search Guard repo.

i did. I'm hoping though that someone using Elasticsearch has set it up with Search Guard and may have seen what i'm seeing, and solved. it.
