When attempting to start the winlogbeat service in Windows I receive the following:
Error 1053: "The service did not respond in a timely fashion" when attempting to start, stop or pause a service."
I've successfully created the service using the Powershell script included in the .zip file but receive this error each time. I'm using the default yaml config file at the moment, I just want to ensure I can initiate the service properly before tailoring the config to talk to our ELK stack.
Any suggestions on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.
PS C:\Program Files\Winlogbeat > .\winlogbeat.exe -e -configtest
Winlogbeat.yml looks like that
- name: Application
- name: Security
- name: System
path: C:/Program Files/Winlogbeat/logs
