Getting below error after X-Pack installation

Hi Team,

We are getting below error on restarting the elasticsearch:

Hi @gayathri,

I realize that this response is a bit late, but better late than never? And hopefully for anyone else that sees this issue. The only reason this error happens is:

  1. The local exporter tried to start before the ES node was actually ready for it to start. (It will retry in 10 seconds)
    • This can usually happen because Kibana 5.x will forward monitoring data to the node to be indexed before the node is ready; it will just be ignored for the next pass.
    • Under normal circumstances, this can just be ignored if it happens once or twice.
  2. The exporters are explicitly disabled and something forwards data.
    • If this is the case, then it will continue to happen and monitoring should be disabled on the sending end (Kibana or Logstash).

Hope that helps someone in the future.
