License upgrade failed on windows

I get the following message, when I go to install the update on windows7:

"acknowledged": false,
"license_status": "valid",
"acknowledge": {
"message": """This license update requires acknowledgement. To acknowledge the license, please read the following messages and update the license again, this time with the "acknowledge=true" parameter:""",
"watcher": [

"monitoring": [
Multi-cluster support is disabled for clusters with [BASIC] license. If you are
running multiple clusters, users won't be able to access the clusters with
[BASIC] licenses from within a single X-Pack Kibana instance. You will have to deploy a
separate and dedicated X-pack Kibana instance for each [BASIC] cluster you wish to monitor.
"Automatic index cleanup is locked to 7 days for clusters with [BASIC] license."

I used the kibana console to update the license:

PUT _xpack/license
//content of the licence.json file

How can I solve from kibana console?


Are you trying to install basic license? - If so - you need to acknowledge that you are downgrading your license. If you can run this - from your terminal - it should work.

curl -XPUT -u elastic ’http://localhost:9200/_xpack/license?acknowledge=true' -H ‘content-type: application/json’ -d @basic.json
