Upgrade Assistant - Default path settings are removed

I ran Upgrade Assistant on my 5.6.3 ES cluster and I get an error that states:

Default path settings are removed
This issue must be resolved to upgrade. Read Documentation
Details: nodes with settings: [node1_data]

However I already have path.data and path.logs set in my elasticsearch.yml file:

\# grep ^path /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml
path.data: /elasticsearch/data
path.repo: /elasticsearch/snapshots
path.logs: /elasticsearch/logs

These settings are identical on all my ES nodes.


Same here too. Must be a bug with 5.6.3.

Hi Ryan,

try to remove in /usr/lib/systemd/system/elasticsearch.service next lines:

               -Edefault.path.logs=${LOG_DIR} \
               -Edefault.path.data=${DATA_DIR} \

Its worked for me in 5.6.4.
