[Solved] Wazuh-indexer Error: Not yet initialized (you may need to run securityadmin)


Running into a "Wazuh dashboard server is not ready yet" error after navigating to the URL in which Wazuh is running:

Screenshot of error message

After running the command system status wazuh-indexer here is what was recorded:

"type": "server", "timestamp": "2022-06-09T16:10:21,804-04:00", "level": "ERROR",
"component": "o.o.s.a.BackendRegistry", "": "wazuh-cluster",
"": "wazuh-indexer", "message": "Not yet initialized (you may need to run securityadmin)",
"cluster.uuid": "F9ORymo0SEuKeVZNLw6C0w", "": "2m6uOkrRTbOf-G8YKhywmw"


The problem is that the securityadmin module has not yet been initialized. To do so, run the following command in the folder containing your file(click here to check out the official Wazuh Indexer Installation instructions for more info):

bash --start-cluster

Afterwards, run system restart wazuh-indexer and re-visit the URL in which Wazuh is running.

Hope this helps anyone running into the same issue!
