I am having some trouble mapping Filebeat in Kibana after doing a clean install to 5.4.0. I have followed the Filebeat guide and have attempted to get it working for a while with no success. I have added a screenshot below which shows the notification error I get when attempting to map Filebeat. You can see by the image, filebeat has been installed (and is running as a service) and is available as an indexing pattern, but this is not the case according to the error. Could someone please shed some light on this and how I go about fixing this?
It is worth noting that the ES, Kibana and beats installation is on an offline Windows Server 2012 R2 VM and therefore I needed to import the beats dashboard offline using the -file command. Also, I have changed all the necessary fields in the filebeat.yml to the IP address of ES, rather than using localhost, and have tested this config file which was ok.
I would really appreciate some assistance on this as I have been pulling the little hair I have left out. Thanks in advanced. Happy to provide more information if necessary.
