Ingest-geoip plugin installs in incorrect location

(Richard) #1

It would seem that, when I install the ingest-geoip plugin, it installs the files in /etc/elasticsearch/ingest-geoip, since the process runas as root.

However, since ES-HOME for the instance is set as /etc/elasticsearch/MyInstanceES ... it appears that elasticsearch, when it starts is looking for the files at /etc/elasticsearch/MyInstanceES /ingest-geoip, and thus it fails to start as a result.

I am runninf elasticsearch 6.1.

This behavior is already registered as a bug in Nov 2017 in elasticsearch v5.6. :

Any workaround or fix highly appreciated.
Thanks for your support.
Best Regards.

It looks like a bug that we need to fix. Your workaround of just manually moving the directory into the right location is probably the best solution in the short term.

Thanks Igor for your reply,
This is indeed what I did thanks to Ansible playbook update.
