ELK installation on windows

Hi, I am trying to install ELK on windows and having hard time to configure elasticsearch mapping to hostname or IP instead of localhost:9200

It is a fresh installation.

I have updated the host file on the machine.
My DNS is working fine.

Below is my elasticsearch file:

======================== Elasticsearch Configuration =========================

NOTE: Elasticsearch comes with reasonable defaults for most settings.

Before you set out to tweak and tune the configuration, make sure you

understand what are you trying to accomplish and the consequences.

The primary way of configuring a node is via this file. This template lists

the most important settings you may want to configure for a production cluster.

Please consult the documentation for further information on configuration options:

Elasticsearch Guide | Elastic

---------------------------------- Cluster -----------------------------------

Use a descriptive name for your cluster:

#cluster.name: my-application

------------------------------------ Node ------------------------------------

Use a descriptive name for the node:

#node.name: node-1

Add custom attributes to the node:

#node.attr.rack: r1

----------------------------------- Paths ------------------------------------

Path to directory where to store the data (separate multiple locations by comma):

#path.data: /path/to/data

Path to log files:

#path.logs: /path/to/logs

----------------------------------- Memory -----------------------------------

Lock the memory on startup:

#bootstrap.memory_lock: true

Make sure that the heap size is set to about half the memory available

on the system and that the owner of the process is allowed to use this


Elasticsearch performs poorly when the system is swapping the memory.

---------------------------------- Network -----------------------------------

By default Elasticsearch is only accessible on localhost. Set a different

address here to expose this node on the network:

network.host: XXX.XX.X.XXX

By default Elasticsearch listens for HTTP traffic on the first free port it

finds starting at 9200. Set a specific HTTP port here:

http.port: 9200

For more information, consult the network module documentation.

--------------------------------- Discovery ----------------------------------

Pass an initial list of hosts to perform discovery when this node is started:

The default list of hosts is ["", "[::1]"]

#discovery.seed_hosts: ["host1", "host2"]

Bootstrap the cluster using an initial set of master-eligible nodes:

#cluster.initial_master_nodes: ["node-1", "node-2"]

For more information, consult the discovery and cluster formation module documentation.

---------------------------------- Various -----------------------------------

Require explicit names when deleting indices:

#action.destructive_requires_name: true

On Linux if you use it will listen on all host interfaces, I think it will on Windows also.

Please format your code/logs/config using the </> button, or markdown style back ticks. It helps to make things easy to read which helps us help you :slight_smile:

Guys, thank you for writing back.

I was able to figure it out.

network.host "host machine IP"
Discovery "hostname"
