Is there an elasticsearch-oss (RPM) package?


(Nick George) #1

Hi,

I have setup Elasticsearch repos according to https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/rpm.html#rpm-repo.

I have also had a look at the main download pages on the Elasticsearch website.

I don't seem to be able to find any "-oss" packages, anywhere. An Elastic blog mentioned that there would be "-oss" versions of packages made available. See https://www.elastic.co/products/x-pack/open. Is that not the case?

The reason I'm keen for an elasticsearch-oss package is because I'm encountering some Auth errors when starting Kibana and I want to completely disable x-pack so I can rule it out as the cause. There no longer appears to be any way to completely remove/disable x-pack.

Thanks,
Nick

I think you should be able to find it under past releases.

That seems like an over-the-top way to diagnose an issue.
Setting

xpack.security.enabled: false

In both elasticsearch.yml and kibana.yml will ensure that X-Pack security is not the cause of whatever error you're seeing.

Thank you both Christian and Tim,

Do you know if there is any plan to include the oss packages in your package repositories? (or provide an alternative repository).

Tim. I understand it looks pretty drastic. I have already disabled xpack security in my Elasticsearch config. I posted another separate question here about the same issue (Unusual auth error after moving to Elastic stack v6.4.2) in the Kibana topic. I'm wondering if maybe the -oss version of Kibana somehow also prevents Searchguard from working. I have posted a question on the Searchguard mailing list to see if they've seen anything like it. Everything was working perfectly with v6.2.4 prior to x-pack being included in the base packages. Or maybe this issue is purely down to a configuration issue on my side.

Good to see that I can get the -oss release of Elasticsearch. I plan to run with that package because in my company we are providing our customers with ES and don't want any possibility of running foul of your licensing.

Thanks for your time.
Nick

The oss packages have separate package repositories. Eg for 6.x, the yum repo should be:

Awesome, thanks Ryan!
