ERROR: Skipping security auto configuration because it appears that the node is not starting up for the first time. The node might already be part of a cluster and this auto setup utility is designed to configure Security for new clusters only


I use es8.1.1 mast node had Started ,but failed to join cluster from node

Please don't post images of text as they are hard to read, may not display correctly for everyone, and are not searchable.

Instead, paste the text and format it with </> icon or pairs of triple backticks (```), and check the preview window to make sure it's properly formatted before posting it. This makes it more likely that your question will receive a useful answer.

It would be great if you could update your post to solve this.

Because, as the message is saying, you have previously started this node.

elasticsearch-reconfigure-node is only meant to be run for nodes that have been installed with either a DEB or an RPM package and should be run directly after installation of the subsequent nodes.

If and only if this is installed with a DEB package, The easiest/simplest way forward for you is to

  1. remove/purge the installation ( you need to purge so that the data and config dirs are removed too ) on ubuntu-sv-222 with apt remove --purge elasticsearch
  2. Install it again
  3. Run the elasticsearch-reconfigure-node tool before starting Elasticsearch
  4. Start Elasticsearch

The data of the folder that solved my previous installation problem, because it has not been deleted, I hope to help new students who install it,thanks。

thank you
