I am trying to set up an evaluation environment for the latest Kibana/ ES because I need to see what the new features are in Kibana (e.g.setting labels on table columns).
I have downloaded latest Kibana 5.0.-snapshot (4th Match 2016) from github and installed it.
I have also installed the latest elasticsearch 5.0.0 snapshot using "esvm -b master" today also and this starts fine .
When I start kibana it is trying to create the the .kibana index in Elasticsearch and the following exception is being thrown by ES (see snippet below):
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong ?
