I’m using the Graylog OVA and would like to connect it to my separately-installed Elasticsearch node outside of the OVA. I ran the following command in the OVA:
sudo graylog-ctl reconfigure-as-server
Should I in fact have run the above command “reconfigure-as-server” in my scenario or was that a mistake?
In the non-OVA docs, I see that server.conf has a setting for elasticsearch_hosts in order to connect to an Elasticsearch node/cluster. However, the OVA doesn’t have server.conf, and I don’t see any way to configure Graylog to point to an external Elasticsearch node… Can this be done from the OVA, or do you have to use Elasticsearch inside the OVA?
