Need help on elasticsearch cluster with open distro

#1

Hi Guys

I am bit confused on creating ES cluster using open distro? I am aware of ES cluster but not sure how do it using Open Distro?

I mean I have 3 nodes and where should I install open distro? My nodes are as follows

node-1
master: true
data: false

node-2
master:true
data:true

node-2
master:true
data:true

Can someone please help?

Hello blason ,

First of all if you’re using docker container ,you’re already using open distro. otherwise if you connect all your node
node1
node2
node3
node1* master
discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ["node1_ip", "node2_ip","node_3_ip"] (like this)

then when you change something in master node it’ll affect all node without changing anything.
for instance if you change elastic password in node1 (which is master node) after that you can use that password for all node’s and kibana…

I hope it helped for your question (problem)

OK - Open distro shoudl be installed on Master node? Or it will be available on all nodes and its just usual settings configured in ES needs to be configured that way?
