Start Elasticsearch with root user


I have installed elasticsearch 6.5.4 and I am just trying to start elasticsearch with root user. Unfortunately, It is not getting started.

I went through a few of the questions posted in forums, It says that it cannot start with the root user. Is that an expected behavior?


Yes, that is expected. You can not run Elasticsearch as root by design.
