Kibana Error Connecting to ES on Docker - Cannot Revive Connection


(CR) #1

I am getting an error attempting to connect Kibana to ES using Docker containers:

kibana-products-624 | {"type":"log","@timestamp":"2018-05-25T14:56:36Z","tags":["warning","elasticsearch","admin"],"pid":1,"message":"Unable to revive connection: http://elasticsearch:9200/"}
kibana-products-624 | {"type":"log","@timestamp":"2018-05-25T14:56:36Z","tags":["warning","elasticsearch","admin"],"pid":1,"message":"No living connections"}

I have tried a number of variations in the environment settings and other configuration for the yml, but continue to get this error.

I have verified that ElasticSearch is running and available at port 9200 using CURL and a browser.

What is wrong with this configuration?

Here is the docker-compose.yml:

version: "3"

volumes:
elasticsearch-products-624-vol:

networks:
elasticsearch-net-624:

services:

elasticsearch-products-624-service:
    image: docker.elastic.co/elasticsearch/elasticsearch:6.2.4
    container_name: elasticsearch-products-624
    restart: always
    networks:
    - elasticsearch-net-624
    environment:
        - cluster.name=docker-cluster
        - bootstrap.memory_lock=true
        - "ES_JAVA_OPTS=-Xms512m -Xmx512m"
        - xpack.security.enabled=true
    ulimits:
        memlock:
            soft: -1
            hard: -1
    ports:
    - "9200:9200"
    expose:
    - "9200"
    volumes:
    - elasticsearch-products-624-vol:/usr/share/elasticsearch/data

kibana-products-624-service:
    image: docker.elastic.co/kibana/kibana:6.2.4
    container_name: kibana-products-624
    hostname: kibana
    restart: always
    networks:
    - elasticsearch-net-624
    environment:
    - SERVER_NAME=kibana.localhost
    - ELASTICSEARCH_URL=http://elasticsearch:9200
    - ELASTICSEARCH_USERNAME=elastic
    - ELASTICSEARCH_HOST=elasticsearch
    - ELASTICSEARCH_PORT=9200
    - ELASTIC_PWD=changeme
    - KIBANA_PWD=changeme
    ports:
    - "5601:5601"
    expose:
    - "5601"
    links:
    - elasticsearch-products-624-service
    depends_on:
    - elasticsearch-products-624-service

Your Elasticsearch container name is elasticsearch-products-624. Kibana's Elasticsearch URL should match - change to http://elasticsearch-products-624:9200.

jen-huang - That did fix the connection problem and thanks for the reference. I am working through this to understand exactly this type of connectivity configuration and what each element in the yml actually refers. Too many of the examples just name everything "elasticsearch" and "kibana" and so when I need to build more complex configurations that require different names for different instances, the examples do not make clear what names they actually refer.
Thanks for your help!
