How to downgrade ES from 6.2 to 6.1.3


(Andre Reinhold) #1

Hi there,

first of all thank you very much for your great support @jasontedor. As mentioned here:
https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/issues/28538 I'm creating an explicit thread asking how to downgrade ES on a debian system where ES was initally installed and upgraded to 6.2 using apt-get.

Please tell me what other information you need in detail.

Thanks,
André


Can't upgrade x-pack and ingest-geoip to 6.2

For Debian with apt-get you can specify the version:

$ sudo apt-get install elasticsearch=6.1.3

This will in-place install Elasticsearch 6.1.3 over your 6.2.0 installation. You can then upgrade again after you address the plugin issue that got you here in the first place.

wow, that was surprisingly easy! Took me 20seconds to install 6.1.3, remove x-pack and reinstall 6.2
ELK up and running again

Hopefully the multiple pipelines feature is working now!

Thanks jason!

Hello all,

I was hitting the same bug on my Elastic monitoring cluster. To downgrade on rpm based systems I had to do:

sudo yum downgrade elasticsearch-6.1.3-1
sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin remove x-pack
sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin install x-pack
sudo systemctl start elasticsearch

After which things normalize...

Grtz

We shipped Elasticsearch 6.2.1 today with a fix for this issue.
