Filebeat on Windows - SSL Certificates

Logstash is installed on Centos 7 and ssl is set to true in my logstash.conf file. Filebeat agents on other Centos machines are harvesting the logs and pushing to Logstash. However I've an issue with my filebeat on my Windows 12 serer.

I've copied logstash-forwarder.crt from my logstash server and placed it in "c:\Program Files\filebeat-6.2.3-windows-x86_64" folder.


hosts: [""]
bulk_max_size: 1024
ssl.certificate_authorities: ["c:\Program Files\filebeat-6.2.3-windows-x86_64\logstash-forwarder.crt"]

Filebeat isn't starting now.

Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

If I comment out the ssl bit from my filebeat.yml, it is coming up. I am sure my logstash-forwarder.crt is fine as other Linux clients are connecting.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
