I'm very new to elasticsearch. I am following the introduction walkthrough video religiously, but I am unable to download marvel.
- Made suggested changes to config/elasticsearch.yml
- Ran ./bin/plugin install license - Successful
- Ran ./bin/plugin install marvel-agent - Successful
- Ran ./bin/plugin install elasticsearch/marvel/latest
Error : failed to download out of all possible locations
- Alternately downloaded zip and tried offline install
Ran ./bin/plugin install file:///home/path/to/marvel-2.1.0.tar.gz
Verifying file:/home/path/to/marvel-2.1.0.tar.gz checksums if available ...
NOTE: Unable to verify checksum for downloaded plugin (unable to find .sha1 or .md5 file to verify)
ERROR: Could not find plugin descriptor 'plugin-descriptor.properties' in plugin zip
What am I doing wrong?
It looks like you're installing marvel multiple times, only steps 1 & 2 are required to install marvel in an elasticsearch node.

Hey @tanguy ,
Thanks for the reply. But in that case I should be able to see something at : http://localhost:9200/_plugin/marvel/
which I'm not able to. Any reasons, why?
Are you using elasticsearch 2.x? If so, then the link I gave you explains how to install everything including Kibana and the marvel plugin to see marvel's dashboards.
The http://localhost:9200/_plugin/marvel/ concerned the version 1.x of marvel that runs on elasticsearch 1.x
Thanks @tanguy , the suggestion worked. The issue was arising because of following installation procedure for 1.x
Following the link worked fine.
