Engineer2 unable to kill kibana


I am on Engineer 2 course - "Securing Elasticsearch". One of the things mentioned there is to kill and restart kibana. My logged in user is elastic, but all applications are running as ubuntu user. Therefore I am unable to kill/restart these. It is also worth mentioning that there is no pid file for any of the applications.

elastic@ip-172-31-3-146:~$ ls -l /home/elastic/
total 4
-rwxr-xr-x 1 elastic elastic 169 Jun  5 04:03

PS: I had a 2 week break in this course. I am not sure if something changed in between.


Hello Jemshad,

Thanks for reaching out to us. You need to first SSH on server1 where you will find elasticsearch and kibana running.

Run the following command: ssh server1.

Hi Romain,

That works. Thanks. The documentation was a bit unclear there. It says 'Navigate to the terminal window that has Kibana up and running'.
