License basic inactive


(Evgeny) #1

After today upgrade of elastic and kibana i've got that basic license is inactive and I cannot re-activate it even through api below is screenshot

when tried to activate basic, I've got the following:


[root@msk-rhlog bin]# curl -X POST "localhost:9200/_xpack/license/start_basic?acknowledge=true"
{"acknowledged":true,"basic_was_started":false,"error_message":"Operation failed: Current license is basic."}


[root@msk-rhlog bin]# curl -X GET "localhost:9200/_xpack/license"
"license" : {
"status" : "invalid",
"uid" : "d0f68d6a-f310-4dcd-91ab-affd47a03361",
"type" : "basic",
"issue_date" : "2018-11-10T22:24:14.948Z",
"issue_date_in_millis" : 1541888654948,
"max_nodes" : 1000,
"issued_to" : "logs",
"issuer" : "elasticsearch",
"start_date_in_millis" : -1

during startup of elastic I have that basic license is valid:


[2018-11-10T23:56:36,118][INFO ][o.e.c.s.ClusterSettings ] [msk-rhlog] updating [xpack.monitoring.collection.enabled] from [false] to [true]

Thank you in advance,

Today it becomes active. Question is closed, ELK is the best!!!

I think "invalid" means the licence hasn't started yet, which makes me think that perhaps your system clock went back in time for some reason after the licence was first created. It became valid again once the system clock had advanced past the creation time once more.
