Error following x-pack installation


(David) #1

installed elasticsearch and kibana on ubuntu 18:04
both working fine
then installed x-pack.
also apparently went well

d@t5500:/usr/share/kibana$ sudo bin/kibana-plugin install x-pack
[sudo] password for d:

but now, port 5601 displays "Login is currently disabled. Administrators should consult the Kibana logs for more details." http://localhost:5601/login?next=%2Fapp%2Fkibana#/home?_g=()

How can I fix this?

Could this have been avoided by changing the elasticsearch or kibana configuration before x-pack installation?

Did you follow the installing X-Pack instructions?

Simply installing the plugin will not work - there are specific set up steps that you need to follow so that Kibana can connect to an ES cluster that is secured with X-Pack. The installation documentation walks you through these steps.
