Install across Separate Instances

In some situations, such as a multi-node Elasticsearch deployment, you may not always wish to install Elasticsearch or Kibana separately.

Update Default Configs and Mirrors

On each instance make sure you have the latest default configurations and mirrors for the version of DynamiteNSM you have installed.

sudo dynamite updates install

Dedicated Elasticsearch Instance

By default, Elasticsearch will bind itself to the primary IP address, this can be overridden with the --network-host flag.

Install Elasticsearch Service

sudo dynamite elasticsearch install

Start the Process

Once installed, you can manage Elasticsearch with the process command.

sudo dynamite elasticsearch process start
sudo dynamite elasticsearch process status --verbose

Dedicated Kibana Instance

Test the Connection to Elasticsearch

Before you begin the Kibana installation ensure that Elasticsearch API is up and reachable from whatever host you want to install Kibana on.

curl -u admin:admin --insecure

You should receive a message similar to the one below:

  "name" : "ip1723021417_es_node",
  "cluster_name" : "dynamite-nsm-cluster",
  "cluster_uuid" : "GIUvsLdlRb-WyQD5j3kd6Q",
  "version" : {
    "number" : "7.10.2",
    "build_flavor" : "oss",
    "build_type" : "tar",
    "build_hash" : "747e1cc71def077253878a59143c1f785afa92b9",
    "build_date" : "2021-01-13T00:42:12.435326Z",
    "build_snapshot" : false,
    "lucene_version" : "8.7.0",
    "minimum_wire_compatibility_version" : "6.8.0",
    "minimum_index_compatibility_version" : "6.0.0-beta1"
  "tagline" : "You Know, for Search"

Now simply run the dynamite kibana install command specifying any --elasticsearch-targets. As with elasticsearch you can override the bound IP address with the --host flag.

Install Kibana Service

sudo dynamite kibana install --elasticsearch-targets

Start the Process

Once installed, you can manage Kibana with the process command.

sudo dynamite kibana process start
sudo dynamite kibana process status --verbose
