I recently had our IT build me a new computer that I am dedicating for a simple elasticsearch/kibana machine. I had previously built my own machine for the same purpose and was successful, that machine was running version 7.9.1-1 of both Kibana and Elasticsearch.
On this new machine I used the repo files which specify "7.x" and it's installed version 7.10.2-1 of both elasticsearch and kibana.
The installation seems to go fine but when I run
sudo service -i kibana start
[centos@kibana ~]$ sudo -i service kibana start
Starting kibana (via systemctl): [ OK ]
But then when I run:
sudo service --status-all
kibana is not running
But the service does seem to be actively running and I can reach it through the browser on the proper port.
And when I run:
[centos@kibana ~]$ sudo systemctl status kibana.service
It appears to be running:
● kibana.service - Kibana
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/kibana.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
Active: active (running) since Fri 2021-02-05 21:06:28 UTC; 21min ago
Main PID: 1368 (node)
There is also no directory ever created for the logs (/var/logs/kibana/), but there is one for elasticsearch.
Has anyone experienced this before or have any idea what's going on exactly?
