Have you modified your elasticsearch.yml, specifically the path.conf section?

Yes i added below, as path.conf wasn't present in yml file before.

path.conf: /opt/Elasticsearch/config/

Does that location exist?

Unless you are changing it from the default, you don't need to define it.

yes it does

[elastic@NODE config]$ pwd

/opt/elasticsearch/config

[elastic@NODE config]$ ls -ltr

total 16

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2672 Dec 13 12:13 jvm.options

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3098 Dec 13 12:59 elasticsearch.yml

This is strange. I know path.data and path.logs are config settings, but this is the first time I have seen path.conf :frowning:
