How Can I Resolve an "Error starting elasticsearch-logging" Error?

Problem: You receive an "Error starting elasticsearch-logging" when you attempt to run the script. Subsequent restart attempts may also result in "NoNodeAvailableException" errors.

Cause: This error is most likely to be the result of Elasticsearch (elastic 5) logging shutting down incorrectly, which can corrupt the data directory for logs.


  1. Stop Tamr and its dependencies. See Restarting Tamr and Its Dependencies in the Tamr Documentation.
  2. Change to the Elasticsearch 5 directory and delete the data directory. Note: This is the data dictionary for logging, and is not used for user interface interactions.
  3. Start Tamr and its dependencies.
