I'm new to the whole ELK stack, followed the setup instructions/guidance and installed on CentOS 8.
Java, NGINX, Elasticsearch, Kibana and logstash installed successfully, I'm able to reach the kibana web interface and all services are running on the machine. My issue started after Winlogbeat was installed, and configured according to the instructions, on a windows server 2012 R2 , a few moments after winlogbeat service starts on this server, it seems like Kibana crashes and I'm not able to access the webUI, if I wanted to restart the ELK processes, they hang-up and never restart.
there are no logs in the default location where Kibana is supposed to create the logs file, and if I configure that manually, the service does not start. I was wondering if someone could help me review the config/YML files. (although there hasn't been any major changes from those that are set by default.)
help is much appreciated.
