X-pack 5.1.1 error in kibana


I have elasticsearch 5.1.1 & kibana 5.1.1, I installed x-pack 5.1.1 in both, but after restarting kibana i am getting following message in kibana:

And in browser i am unable to access localhost:5601

Any help please!!!! ,

Can you access localhost:9200?

This looks as if the x-pack plugin on the elasticsearch side was not installed successfully, can you rerun bin/elasticsearch-plugin install x-pack - make sure you finish the installation by manually agreeing on the ask for security permissions.

Thanks for the reply,
Yes localhost:9200 is accessible & output is:
"name" : "JMnD7eU",
"cluster_name" : "App-Cluster",
"cluster_uuid" : "pmE-CY9l6NuVK0TCpvIMKg",
"version" : {
"number" : "5.1.1",
"build_hash" : "4455e21",
"build_date" : "2016-12-06T12:36:15.409Z",
"build_snapshot" : false,
"lucene_version" : "6.3.0"
"tagline" : "You Know, for Search"

Yes , i installed xpack in elasticsearch 5.1.1 by manually agreeing security persmission & finally it showed that successfully installed x-pack!!!!!


great to see it working. An easy to check for installed plugins would be one of

curl 'localhost:9200/_nodes/plugins?filter_path=**.plugins.name&pretty'
curl 'localhost:9200/_cat/plugins'

If you dont want to agree manually on the permissions, there is also a batch mode available when installing the plugin using -b


Thanks again, its working i have to created user in elasticsearch & same added in kibana config & its working :slight_smile:


same issue here.
What do you mean by create user for elasticsearch and kibana?
I've installed ELK with the yum install command.

After installing xpack ,shields gets in place so in Elasticsearch we must create a user with admin role and same credentials we must add in kibana.yml.
It worked for me, hope it 'll work!!!!
