io.netty.handler.ssl.NotSslRecordException: not an SSL/TLS record:


(Meet Dave) #1

Hello,

I have installed x-pack and configured each and every node of my elastic cluster for SSL certificates using certutil tool provided by x-pack. A forwarder is configured to ingest data into elastic cluster, I checked twice that forwarder must use https instead of http but unable to ingest data. Here is the error shown in log file of elasticsearch. I have also configured kibana which is working very fine the problem is forwarder is not able to connect.

Hi

If by forwarder you mean a Logstash forwarder, is there any specific reason why you don't use Filebeat instead?

How did you check this? Can you share your config ?

Can you share more details on how does this problem manifest ? What are the symptoms? What are you expecting to happen that doesn't happen?

The error you pasted clearly states that something is sending plaintext traffic to Elasticsearch and
0300002b26e00000000000436f6f6b69653a206d737473686173683d68656c6c6f0d0a0100080003000000 is the request it receives hex encoded and decodes to

+&àCookie: mstshash=hello

but seems to be unrelated to Elasticsearch or the Forwarder, it looks like something is tryintg to connect over RDP to the port Elasticsearch is listening at ?
