Pre upgrade to 8.2.3 I was able to start kibana with 'systemctl start kibana' but it just fails over and over again after the upgrade.
I found I am able to run Kibana using
It looks like I upgraded as root so I'm not sure why this would be a problem:
root@xxxx1:/usr/share/kibana/bin# ls -al
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 16 14:55 .
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Jun 16 14:55 ..
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 835 Jun 8 10:42 kibana
& Here his the .yml file.
root@xxxx:/etc/kibana# ls -al
drwxr-s--- 2 root kibana 4096 Jun 16 14:57 .
drwxr-xr-x 118 root root 12288 Jun 16 14:55 ..
-rw-rw---- 1 root kibana 130 Jun 16 14:55 kibana.keystore
-rw-r--r-- 1 root kibana 62 Jun 16 14:55 .kibana.keystore.initial_md5sum
-rw-rw---- 1 root kibana 7700 Jun 16 14:57 kibana.yml
-rw-r--r-- 1 root kibana 305 Jun 8 10:42 node.options
How do I fix this so I can use systemd to start up kibana normally?
Resolved this myself using the following commands -
1991 apt-get remove --purge kibana
1993 rm -r /var/lib/kibana
1994 rm -r /etc/kibana
1995 useradd kibana
1996 groupadd kibana
1997 usermod -a -G kibana kibana
systemctl start kibana
systemctl status kibana
journalctl -fu kibana.service
Also had this error:
Generating a random key for xpack.reporting.encryptionKey. To prevent sessions from being invalidated on restart, please set xpack.reporting.encryptionKey in the kibana.yml or use the bin/kibana-encryption-keys command.
Paste output keys into kibana.yml at the bottom
And lastly this error:
Unable to retrieve version information from Elasticsearch nodes. security_exception: [security_exception] Reason: missing authentication credentials for REST request [/_nodes?filter_path=nodes.*.version%2Cnodes.*.http.publish_address%2Cnodes.*.ip]
Requires you to set up your basic authentication credentials in kibana.yml or have pre-upgrade generated a token via this command (using the dev tools in kibana):
elasticsearch.serviceAccountToken: "paste generated token here"
