Elastic 7.3 is coming to NetEye 4.8. In order to prepare for this significant change, you must first update Log Manager on NetEye 4.7 to receive the Elastic 6.8.2 update that will set up the necessary migrations for updating Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana.
In addition to the ELK stack, SearchGuard will also be updated to the latest available version for “SearchGuard 6”, which are SearchGuard 25.4 and Kibana plugin 18.5.
When updating to Elastic 6.8.2, there will be no additional steps beyond those typically required, so please refer to our standard update procedure: User Guide > Upgrading and Updating > Updating NetEye
Please note that, as usual, any .rpmnew and .rpmsave files must be migrated User Guide > Upgrading and Updating > Migrate .rpmsave / .rpmnew Files. The directory /usr/share/elasticsearch/plugins/search-guard-6/ will be removed in future updates and the presence of any .rpmsave or .rpmnew files will prevent its deletion and therefore cause errors when Elasticsearch starts up.
