Multiple instances on a machine as different services?


#1

Hi,

Currently we are running NLS which is based on an older ELK stack on our system. We would like to migrate smoothly to pure ELK in version 5.0.

To avoid a big bang we would like to install ELK 5 in parallel. Tagret system is redhat linux.

How can I install ELK 5 in parallel to the old version. I would like to install elk manually and change the service names to elasticsearch5, logstash5, kibana5, but I don't know how to do it. (I am not that familar with linux).

Thanks, Andreas

Hi,

My two cents:

1°/ Read lot of documentations :-)

2°/ Install service after service, first : Elasticsearch

You can install the .tar.gz package manualy, in a special directory. Change the cluster name in the configuration, run it.

Then pass to the next service, etc...

Unfortunately, I did not find the point on how to install the service manually in the docs. Maybe that I am blind. Can anyone provide a link?
Thanks, Andreas

Read : https://www.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch

1°/ Download & unzip

2.0°/ Open conf/elasticsearch.yml and change

cluster.name: you_cluster_name
node.name: a_node_name_if_you_want
transport.tcp.port: 9301
http.port: 9201

Probably need that too :

discovery.zen.ping.multicast.enabled: false
discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ["your_ip:9300", "your_ip:9301"]

2.1°/ Run the command

bin/elasticsearch

This new node will join your current cluster installed as a service
