How to create a master eligible node in elasticsearch 5


In elasticsearch 2.3, I have set up master eligible node by setting;

node.client: false true

But in elasticsearch 5, I am getting error like

unknown setting [node.client]

How can I fix this, or how can I make a master eligible node (i would like to setup a cluster of 3 ME nodes) in elasticsearch 5?


As Mark pointed out, the node.client setting has been removed as it is redundant. A client node is basically a node that has and mode.master both set to false.

Ok.. So do my settings make it a master eligible node?

Setting node.master to true will make the node master eligible whether it holds data or not.
