Hi, I'm just trying to run elasticsearch 2.3.0 as a service on a linux machine[Xubuntu 16.04], using systemd. I installed elasticsearch manually, I downloaded elasticsearch-2.3.0.zip and unziped into my machine and ran it form /bin/elasticsearch.sh.
The problem comes when I want to let the systemd run and manage the elasticsearch process.
So far, I found a file called elasticsearch.service, I modified the file according to my installation path and run:
sudo systemctl daemon-reload sudo systemctl enable elasticsearch.service
But get this message:
elasticsearch.service is not a native service, redirecting to systemd-sysv-install
What is the procedure to run as a service if elasticsearch is installed manually? By manually I mean I didn't use any .rpm or .deb or any other package.
