  1. If necessary, install Java version 1.8 or later.

  2. Install Elasticsearch version 5.x and Kibana.

    For product download and installation instructions, refer to the Elasticsearch documentation on the Elastic website: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/5.0/windows.html

  3. Configure Elasticsearch and Kibana.

    By default, Elasticsearch and Kibana use localhost. It is mandatory to change the localhost value to your actual hostname in the configuration files.

    1. Edit Elasticsearch.yml in a text editor.

      The file is found in the \elasticsearch-5.x.x\config folder.

    2. Add a line after the commented lines as follows:

      network.host: yourhostname

    3. Edit kibana.yml in a text editor.

      The file is found in the \kibana-5.x.x-windows-x86\config folder.

    4. Add the following lines after the commented lines as follows:

      server.host: yourhostname

      elasticsearch.url: "http://yourhostname:9200"

  4. At the Windows command prompt (run as administrator), navigate to the Elasticsearch bin directory and execute Elasticsearch.bat.

  5. Make sure the Elastic server is up and running by browsing to the URL http://yourhostname:9200.

    By default, Elasticserver runs with localhost http://localhost:9200/.

  6. At the Windows command prompt (run as administrator), navigate to the Kibana bin directory and execute kibana.bat.

  7. Make sure the Kibana server is up and running by browsing to http://yourhostname:5601.

    • By default, Kibana is accessed through port 5601.

    • We recommend running Elasticsearch and Kibana as a Windows service. For more information, see the Elastic documentation topic "Installing Elasticsearch as a Service on Windows" at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/5.0/windows.html#windows-service.
