What is your Java version?

BTW 1.x series is EOL now.

using java version 1.8

can you please help us!


(David Pilato) #4

Can you give the exact output of java -version please?


(Bala Murali) #6

Exact java version is 1.8.0_92

we are pointing java folder to ES in startup so java -version shows wrong version

I remember that there have been issues like this one in the past: https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch-cloud-aws/issues/233

You have to downgrade your JVM version (not recommended) or upgrade your elasticsearch version (recommended).

The fix has been made for elasticsearch 1.7 (cloud-aws 2.7.1).
