I'm trying to remotely install Elasticsearch and Kibana on an Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS server as described in the Elasticsearch Guide. Unfortunately the automatic security configuration during install does simply not happen – neither is any security configured, nor is the security autoconfiguration information printed, not during the installation and also not on first start. (I'm familiar with the process only on a Mac, where this takes place on the first start.)
After having tried for a few hours to configure security manually with help from different parts of the Elasticsearch Guide and this forum, I'd wish I could just start over and be pointed to a simple mistake that enables the standard security auto-configuration.
Any ideas or similar encounters out there?
