Simple elastic cluster setup

I have a few questions regarding setting up an elastic cluster. I had initially used the scale option to bring up 3 elasticsearch instances but the cluster didn’t seem to form automatically. What I am I missing?

Secondly, I’ve had a look at the rancher-compose file for the elasticsearch cluster setup from the catalog what I’m unclear about is what exactly is the job of ‘rancher/elasticsearch-conf:v0.4.0’ and why is it needed?

What you are looking for is here in the catalog-dockerfiles github repository.

The conf container will keep an elasticsearch config up to date reading rancher-metadata service.

Thank you, that was actually very help. I’ve now managed to setup a simple three node cluster!

Cheers. :slight_smile:
