Unable to edit native users using the reset password API

Hi, I'm unable to edit native users. The calls I make to the API seems to be hanging forever.

This user is available as I can receive it by this call:

curl -k -u elastic:changeme -XGET 'localhost:9200/_xpack/security/user/kibana4_server?pretty'
  "kibana4_server" : {
    "username" : "kibana4_server",
    "roles" : [
    "full_name" : null,
    "email" : null,
    "metadata" : { },
    "enabled" : true
But if I try to edit it just hangs: ``` curl -k -u elastic:changeme -XPOST 'localhost:9200/_xpack/security/user/kibana4_server?pretty' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d' { "password" : "changeme", "roles" : [ "kibana4_server" ], "enabled": true } ' ``` Any idea what could be wrong? Note I'm using ansible-elasticsearch to provision my cluster and it has been working flawlessly until I try to enable x-pack. Then it fails on the task: "Update Native Users", where the script tries to edit users via this native api. Best regards, Hreidar.

Can you check the log for your elasticsearch nodes?
