Unable to change the elastic user password


We used the below command to change the password however it shows an error as per the screen shot attached.

/usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch-setup-passwords interactive

Elastic version- 7.9

Please don't post pictures of text, they are difficult to read, impossible to search and replicate (if it's code), and some people may not be even able to see them :slight_smile:

That command does not change the password, its sets the passwords for the first time. You cannot use it to change the password after it has already been set.
