Elastic Cloud Enterprise version 2.0.1

Version 2.0.1 of Elastic Cloud Enterprise includes new features, improvements and bug fixes.

New Features

Elastic Cloud Enterprise now supports the latest versions of the Elastic Stack, including:

  • Elasticsearch and Kibana 6.5.1
  • Elasticsearch and Kibana 5.6.13

To learn more about the best practices to use when upgrading, refer to Upgrade Versions. For more information about the features in this version of Elasticsearch and Kibana, see:

Installation Improvements

If the Docker version is lower than 1.11, the installation script now blocks installation.

Snapshot Improvements

ECE now consistently applies a default snapshot interval after enabling snapshots on a deployment.

ZooKeeper Improvements

ECE now automatically recovers from allocators failing to authenticate after reconnecting to ZooKeeper. ECE also logs additional information when adding nodes to or removing them from a ZooKeeper ensemble.

Docker Improvements

The following improvements for Docker are now available:

  • ECE now ensures that there is no GID collision when adding the elastic user to the docker.sock group.
  • Our documentation now provides updated instructions for using Docker 18.03 on Ubuntu and for using Docker on RHEL. To learn more, see Prepare Your Environment.

API Improvements

ECE can now successfully move Elasticsearch nodes for the system-owned admin-console-elasticsearch and the logging-and-metrics deployments from failed allocators.

Bug Fixes

The following bug fixes are included:

  • After an Elasticsearch 6.0 to 6.4 upgrade is complete, ECE now restarts watches to work around a bug in Elasticsearch that may cause inconsistencies after migration of the .watches index. See #33167 for more information.
  • Custom plugins that you uploaded now remain available following a restart of Elasticsearch clusters on versions greater than 6.3.
  • Kibana logs are now always correctly labelled in the UI. Previously, some logs were mislabelled as Elasticsearch logs.

Known Problems and Limitations

When you use OverlayFS with Kernel-LT 4.4.156 and later, there is a known regression that prevents Elastic Cloud Enterprise from completing the installation. To work around this issue, use Kernel 4.4.155 from the kernel-archive.
