Just downloaded the most recent versions of Elasticsearch and Kibana (5.0.0), followed the install instructions and now can navigate to http://localhost:5601 and I see the Kibana interface. However, I get the following two issues in the Status Breakdown:
ui settings Elasticsearch plugin is red
plugin:firstname.lastname@example.org This version of Kibana requires Elasticsearch v5.0.0 on all nodes. I found the following incompatible nodes in your cluster: v1.7.1 @ inet[/127.0.0.1:9200] (169.254.165.214)
The only issue I had with the instructions were that I could not get "sense" installed which after much searching in Google I found that I actually don't need it with the latest version of Kibana. Seems the install instructions are not complete and/or need some updating.
FYI, this is a brand new server install and I have never installed either of these products before so I'm not sure why Kibana is saying it see's a 1.7.1 version of Elasticsearch.
