Issue securing Elasticsearch : elasticsearch-setup-passwords not installed

I have a three-node Elasticsearch cluster running 6.8.22 and I'm trying to add passwords following the instructions here: However, I don't have Elasticsearch-setup-passwords installed. I found documentation for how to install them but got a warning message indicating that it can't install on oss versions, and Googleing that warning took me right back to the original document I was working from. Here is the contents of my Elasticsearch bin directory:

$ ls /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin
elasticsearch      elasticsearch-env       elasticsearch-plugin  elasticsearch-translog
elasticsearch-cli  elasticsearch-keystore  elasticsearch-shard

Is there something else that I need to do to turn this feature on? Here is my version/build information:

"version" : "6.8.22",
      "build_flavor" : "oss",
      "build_type" : "rpm",
      "build_hash" : "71fcb50",

Thank you for the assistance

You need to get the default distribution to have Security included :slight_smile:

Is it possible to upgrade from the oss distribution to the default distribution?

Yes, just switch to using the default distro.
