Unable to perform Offline X-Pack Installation


(Ong) #1

I have downloaded x-pack 5.5.2.zip and extracted it into a folder in Windows. The setup is an offline one and I followed the instructions at:

[https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/5.5/installing-xpack-es.html](https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/5.5/installing-xpack-es.html

I ran the command as shown on the link above:
bin/elasticsearch-plugin install file:///path/to/file/x-pack-5.5.2.zip

and encountered this error:
Checking if url exists: https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/file/\\C/\Users\Admin\Desktop\x-pack-5.5.2.zip/\C-windows-86-\Users\Admin\Desktop\x-pack-5.5.2.zip

Exception in thread "main" java.net.UnknownHostException: repo1.maven.org

I guess that if fails because this is an offline computer with no access to the Internet and it is trying to access a https site?

If so, what are the steps to correctly install X-pack for an offline computer?

Exactly what command did you run? It doesn't look like you specified the correct format for the URL.
