Kibana is not working


(Mohammed Essabri) #1

Dear team,

I'm a new user in Kibana and it is not working in my machine, it shows the following exception:

[license][xpack] license information from the X-Pack plugin could not be obtained from Elasticsearch for the [data] cluster. AuthentificationException[unable to authenticate user[user_name] for REST request [/_xpack]...

Please help!

Thanks and best regards,
Mohammed ESSABRI

Which version of the stack are you using?


(Mohammed Essabri) #3

I don't know which exactly means a stack version, is it the version of Elasticsearch ? if yes, it's 1.7
The version of Kibana is the latest 6.3.0

Thank you


(Christian Dahlqvist) #4

From version 5.0 of the stack, the Kibana version must match the Elasticsearch version, so Kibana 6.3 will not work with Elasticsearch versions prior to 6.3.


(Mohammed Essabri) #5

OK thank you for the reply, i'll try with that!

Dear @Christian_Dahlqvist,

Basing on this discussion, i need 4.1.x to run the latest version of kibana with my ES version 1.7 but i can't find it in Kibana releases

Thanks

Dear @Christian_Dahlqvist,

I changed Elasticsearch server ip in kipana yml config but it's still trying to connect to localhost, please check the yml file below

# Kibana is served by a back end server. This controls which port to use.
port: 5601

elasticsearch.url: "http://10.**.**.**:9200"

(Christian Dahlqvist) #11

Is this for Kibana 4.1? If that is the case I have not used it in years, so will unfortunately not be of much help.


(Mohammed Essabri) #12

Yes it's 4.1, because i'm using ES 1.7 and you adviced me to use an older version

Thank you and best regards,
Mohammed ESSABRI
