If you want to get started as quickly as possible:
- Verify the prerequisites: Ubuntu 14.04 or RHEL/CentOS 7+ with the correct kernel version and system settings, Docker 1.11, and at least 8GB RAM for each host you install on. A single virtual machine will get you started, if it meets the basic prerequisites.
Install Elastic Cloud Enterprise on your first host:
bash <(curl -fsSL https://download.elastic.co/cloud/elastic-cloud-enterprise-installer.sh)
Log into the Cloud UI using the details provided for the administration console at the end of Step 2. The details provide a URL and user credentials similar to this example:
Administration Console Details: URL: http://192.168.50.10:12400 (See documentation for HTTPS details) Username: root Password: fTao-oa3x8SxT4GjKOlsF6Xy7Ez5C2EvJIW64DrbdT4=
- Start creating clusters!
Optional: Add more hosts to your Elastic Cloud Enterprise installation. Include the
--coordinator-host HOST_IPparameter provided at the end of Step 2, where
HOST_IPis the IP address of the first host you installed on. For example,
bash <(curl -fsSL https://download.elastic.co/cloud/elastic-cloud-enterprise-installer.sh) --coordinator-host HOST_IP
