I am stuck here.
anybody any suggestions please


(David Pilato) #3

Read this and specifically the "Also be patient" part.

It's fine to answer on your own thread after 2 or 3 days (not including weekends) if you don't have an answer.


(Mohan Kumar U) #4

Should i provide more info about the error?
Where is it actually going wrong.


(David Pilato) #5

Did you try to update your branch to the latest master version?


(Mohan Kumar U) #6

I did try,still the same error


(David Pilato) #7

I just tried the latest master branch on my laptop and this worked well. But I'm running under MacOS.
@jasontedor do we have anyone who can test that on a windows machine?


(Mohan Kumar U) #8

I tried it in my friends laptop(windows) it works , but not in mine,i am running it in windows too.


(David Pilato) #9

Did you run a gradlew clean?


(Mohan Kumar U) #10

Yes i did


(David Pilato) #11

Once you get the error, could you go to C:\Users\Mohan Kumar U\Desktop\elasticsearch-master\distribution\build\cluster\run node0\elasticsearch-8.0.0-SNAPSHOT\bin dir and run from the prompt:

elasticsearch-keystore create

And share all the result?


(Mohan Kumar U) #13

In thisC:\Users\Mohan Kumar U\Desktop\elasticsearch-master\distribution\build\cluster\run node0\elasticsearch-8.0.0-SNAPSHOT\ dir, i got

@ikakavas Does this ring a bell to you?

Just saw your comment here (https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/issues/39413#issuecomment-467787582) and although this does seem to be directly related I wonder if we have another connected issue.


(Ioannis Kakavas) #15

This was expected as the user was in the wrong directory and there was no elasticsearch-keystore in there.

The error here is that the user that ran the elasticsearch-keystore command doesn't have the necessary permissions to overwrite the existing elasticsearch.keystore file during our attempt to overwrite the file. Which might make sense since the file is located in C:\ProgramData\Elastic\Elasticsearch\config\elasticsearch.keystore

This seems to imply that the keystore was already created despite the error message shown in the original post.

@MKU can you please delete the folder and download the latest version again and try to run ./gradlew run? I don't have a windows machine available right now but I can try to replicate this in a VM later if need be


(David Pilato) #16

I agree but the @MKU said that he ran gradlew clean. That should clean any existing keystore right?


(Ioannis Kakavas) #17

I guess that if they run gradlew clean with the same user that runs gradlew run then the user would not have the permissions to remove the existing keystore.

The original error

implies that the keystore was already there when this gradle run ran, as it fails when it tries to offer a prompt to the user telling them that the keystore already exists and they can overwrite it if they want to.

An interesting question is why does the user get

In C:\Users\Mohan Kumar U\Desktop\elasticsearch-master\distribution\build\cluster\run node0\elasticsearch-8.0.0-SNAPSHOT\bin` dir, I got thisAn elasticsearch keystore already exists. Overwrite? [y/N]y
Exception in thread "main" java.nio.file.AccessDeniedException: C:\ProgramData\Elastic\Elasticsearch\config\elasticsearch.keystore.tmp -> C:\ProgramData\Elastic\Elasticsearch\config\elasticsearch.keystore

which seems to imply that $ES_CONFIG env variable exists and points to C:\ProgramData\Elastic\Elasticsearch\config\ and is picked up by ./gradlew run

@MKU is Elasticsearch already installed in this windows machine ? If so how did you install it?


(Mohan Kumar U) #18

I could not run elasticsearch by the zip file download,so i installed MSI installer for windows.
But i am not able to uninstall it.


(Ioannis Kakavas) #19

Do you want to run an unreleased version of Elasticsearch for testing purposes or do you want to run the latest available released version?

What did you try and how did it not work for you? Have you performed the actions as described in our documentation ?


(Mohan Kumar U) #20

Basically i want to work with latest elasticsearch source code.
I did try to uninstall msi installer as described there.


(Ioannis Kakavas) #21

And what happened, or how did it fail? We can't assist you if you do not share enough details :slight_smile:
