I'm using vagrant 2.2.6 in a WSL (Windows Services for Linux) Ubuntu environment installed on Windows 10.

Please append a line which is common to your other Vagrantfiles to the Vagrant.configure section:

Vagrant.configure(VAGRANTFILE_API_VERSION) do |config|
config.vm.box = "geerlingguy/ubuntu1804"
config.ssh.insert_key = false
config.vm.synced_folder '.', '/vagrant', disabled: true

Otherwise, the "vagrant up" command fails with a WSL specific error

During ansible provisioning of the geerlingguy/ubuntu1804 vm, installation of elasticsearch (using the geerlinguy.elasticsearch role) fails due to the lack of pip in the vm.

The addition of the geerlingguy.pip role prior to the geerlingguy.elasticsearch line in provisioning/elk/main.yml resolves the issue:

roles:
- geerlingguy.java
- geerlingguy.nginx
- geerlingguy.pip
- geerlingguy.elasticsearch
- geerlingguy.elasticsearch-curator
- geerlingguy.kibana
- geerlingguy.logstash
- geerlingguy.filebeat

Regarding the pip addition—what was the error you got when it was not present? The elasticsearch role doesn't use Pip in any way AFAICT.

It looks like the curator role does require pip, though: https://github.com/geerlingguy/ansible-role-elasticsearch-curator/blob/7b1364efca9d27caeaea6a476156878d99d9b839/tasks/main.yml#L8-L15

I just ran the test (now on Ubuntu 20.04 though), and didn't hit an issue with pip not being present, but since it does seem to be a requirement for the curator role, I see no harm in adding it in, especially since there are systems that will definitely not have it installed.

I'm also realizing that 2 GB of memory for the ES/Kibana server is woefully inadequate, so I'll bump that requirement to 4 GB.

This will be fixed in the next version of the book. Thanks for posting!
