Akamas uses Elasticsearch to store logs and time-series. When running Akamas on Kubernetes, Elasticsearch is installed, automatically using the official Elasticsearch helm chart. This chart required running an init container with privileged access to set up a configuration on the host running the Elasticsearch pod. If running such a container is not permitted in your environment you can add the following snippet to the
akamas.yamlfile when installing Akamas to disable this feature.
# Disable ES privileged initialization container.
