Shield Goes Down Automatically

security

(Nabeel Gujar) #1

I have shield and license installed on all my Nodes, 1 client,3 Master and 6 data Nodes but as soon as i start the cluster shield automatically goes down,exposing my cluster publicly. Status of shield changes to unlicensed and when i check my license it says active.

Hi,

Thanks for creating a thread here.

What messages do you see in logs? Which version are you using and what kind of license?


(Nabeel Gujar) #3

When i check the status of shield via :9200/_shield. It gives me a status of "unlicensed". There are no errors in logs . Shield is not working for my cluster.

Which version are you using and what kind of license?

My Elasticsearch version is 2.3.3 and i am using shield with a basic license.


(Jay Modi) #7

Shield will not function with a basic license, but you can request a trial license by sending an email to info@elastic.co, which will let you try out shield.


(Nabeel Gujar) #8

But trail license is gonna expire again in 30 days. Let me see if i can buy a gold subscription.
