Failed to start the service winlogbeat

Hi everyone,

I'm facing the issue to start the winlogbeat server on my windows servers " windows couldn't start the winlogbeat on your local computer. Error 1067 Please assist if anyone faced this issues and solved.


Hi @Waseem.M,

Which version of winlogbeat are you using? And how have you installed the beat on your windows server?

I'm working on windows 2016 and 2019 servers. following the list of commands from elk website. its the latest version 8.x

Please recommend best process to install it on n number of servers. (automate)

Thank you @carly.richmond

It is a failed to start, 99 out of a 100 times that I have seen this error type it means there is an error in the yaml (config file).

Could you share a sanitized version of your config?
