There is my configuration

elasticsearch.yml

# ======================== Elasticsearch Configuration=========================
#
# NOTE: Elasticsearch comes with reasonable defaults for most settings.
#       Before you set out to tweak and tune the configuration, make sure you
#       understand what are you trying to accomplish and the consequences.
#
# The primary way of configuring a node is via this file. This template lists
# the most important settings you may want to configure for a production cluster.
#
# Please consult the documentation for further information on configuration options:
# https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/index.html
#
# ---------------------------------- Cluster -----------------------------------
#
# Use a descriptive name for your cluster:
#
#cluster.name: my-application
#
# ------------------------------------ Node ------------------------------------
#
# Use a descriptive name for the node:
#
node.name: gilang
#
# Add custom attributes to the node:
#
#node.attr.rack: r1
#
# ----------------------------------- Paths ------------------------------------
#
# Path to directory where to store the data (separate multiple locations by comma):
#
path.data: /var/lib/elasticsearch
#
# Path to log files:
#
path.logs: /var/log/elasticsearch
#
# ----------------------------------- Memory -----------------------------------
#
# Lock the memory on startup:
#
#bootstrap.memory_lock: true#
# Make sure that the heap size is set to about half the memory available
# on the system and that the owner of the process is allowed to use this
# limit.
#
# Elasticsearch performs poorly when the system is swapping the memory.
#
# ---------------------------------- Network -----------------------------------
#
# Set the bind address to a specific IP (IPv4 or IPv6):
#
network.host: 100.100.200.150
# Set a custom port for HTTP:
#
http.port: 9200
#
# For more information, consult the network module documentation.
#
# --------------------------------- Discovery ----------------------------------
#
# Pass an initial list of hosts to perform discovery when this node is started:
# The default list of hosts is ["127.0.0.1", "[::1]"]
#
discovery.seed_hosts: ["gilang",]
#
# Bootstrap the cluster using an initial set of master-eligible nodes:
#
cluster.initial_master_nodes: ["gilang"]
#
# For more information, consult the discovery and cluster formation module documentation.
#
# ---------------------------------- Gateway -----------------------------------
#
# Block initial recovery after a full cluster restart until N nodes are started:
#
#gateway.recover_after_nodes: 3
#
# For more information, consult the gateway module documentation.
#
# ---------------------------------- Various -----------------------------------
#
# Require explicit names when deleting indices:
#
#action.destructive_requires_name: true
#
#---------------------------------- X_PACK -------------------------------------
action.auto_create_index: .monitoring*,.watches,.triggered_watches,.watcher-history*,.ml*

It seems that elasticsearch is already running.

how it can be running while the status of elasticsearch is failed to start with error

(code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

I found the problem.

after i deleting

/var/lib/elasticsearch/nodes/0/node.lock

and I reinstalling the elasticsearch. Its running active again

but please,can u explain how can be happend?

Have you checked prior via jps if another process is running?

there is nothing running aplication except firewall
and i'have already add firewall port for elastic,kibana,and logstash

is the network.host: 100.100.200.150 is your system's IP address.?

Sagar_mandal

yes. There is my segment IP address i make on my system network at my home

okay try to add..

transport.host: localhost  

transport.tcp.port: 9300 

in your elasticsearch.yml and restart the service of elasticsearch

Thanks for the help

for right now,my elasticsearch was running active

but i just want to know
how it can be work after i'm deleting

/var/lib/elasticsearch/nodes/0/node.lock

can u give some reason?

When a node is running it creates this file. Which prevents you from running another instance by mistake on the same machine.
When the node stops, this file is removed normally.

ohhh i see

Thanks very much for the information.
