I had a local Ubuntu 18 on a Hyper-V machine with ES 6 installed.
The path.data & path.logs are configured on a mounted external drive.
The IT guys tried to upgrade it to 6.8, then to 7.4 but something went wrong (Kibana kept restarting).
This machine does not exist anymore.
I now have a new machine with ES & Kibana 7.4 that works with the default '/var/lib/elasticsearch'.
I mounted the external drive and changed the paths to the respective paths in the external storage.
When I start the services, I can get to ES from remote machines.
Kibana does not work.
When I try to start only ES, 'http://10.163.129.77:9200/_cat/health?v' returns:
pending_tasks: GROWING INDEFINITELY
Other info\logs you need to help me?
Thanks in advance.
