Filebeat Unexpected file opening error: File info is not identical with opened file


(Fiona) #1

I am running into the same problem logged previously:
https://discuss.elastic.co/t/unexpected-file-opening-error-file-info-is-not-identical-with-opened-file/84026

I don't see any resolution to it though. I am also trying to load in IIS SMTP logs and just get repeated messages in the log for the file.

Filebeat version: 6.3.2

Works fine with other log files I am bringing in, just seems to be the SMTP service logs.
