Problem in starting a node in ES 2.2.1


(ganeshbabu) #1

Hi All,

I installed Elasticsearch 2.2.1 version in DEV server and configured 3 yml files like (elasticsearch-poc-master.yml, elasticsearch-poc-data.yml & elasticsearch-poc-client.yml).
Below is the command details used in shell file (startES_master.sh) to start master node,

!/bin/sh
export ES_INCLUDE=/opt/esadmin/elasticsearch-2.2.1/bin/elasticsearch.poc.sh
export ES_HEAP_SIZE=8g
./elasticsearch -Des.path.conf=/opt/esadmin/elasticsearch-2.2.1/config/elasticsearch_poc_master.yml

Below is the response which I got when I start the master node,
[esadmin@dayrhebfmd001 bin]$ sh startES_master.sh
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (bootstrap).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

Please Correct me if I am doing wrong setup configuration.

It's going to be https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/2.2/breaking_20_setting_changes.html#_custom_config_file

@warkolm

Is the above configuration in yml which I setup is right or not?

Could you please explain us and I am getting confused with the reference link.

Hi @warkolm,

Could you please tell me what is the error I made in the configuration setup?

Thanks,

From the docs;

It is no longer possible to specify a custom config file with the CONF_FILE environment variable, or the -Des.config, -Des.default.config, or -Delasticsearch.config parameters.

Instead, the config file must be named elasticsearch.yml and must be located in the default config/ directory, unless a custom config directory is specified.
