Hello All, running attempting to setup fleet on Ubuntu using this artricle https://holdmybeersecurity.com/2021/01/07/getting-started-with-fleetdm-v3-6-0/ - When I run /usr/local/bin/fleet prepare db --config /etc/fleetdm/fleetdm.yml in step 19 under manual install of FleetDM 3.6.0 on Ubuntu -> Install.Setup FleetDM 3.6.0, I get No help topic for ‘prepare’ Is there another command I need to Init FleetDM database?

You should really use the latest version of Fleet (4.18) - that version and documentation is very old.

Hey thanks for the quick response, I substituted for the version you mentioned. I see the Fleet documentation has the same fleet prep command -> example on the page /usr/bin/fleet prepare db \ --mysql_address=127.0.0.1:3306 \ --mysql_database=fleet \ --mysql_username=root \ --mysql_password=toor?Fl33t ---- Didn’t see ‘prepare’ in the fleet help also

Plus one on using the up to date version 😃 Any chance you grabbed the
fleetctl
package rather than Fleet? If
package
is showing in the help dialogue, that's what's up.

Yep see it, I believe I grabbed it from this path https://github.com/fleetdm/fleet/releases/download/fleet-v4.18.0/fleetctl_v4.18.0_linux.zip which I see that it is the ctl 😅

There are a lot of links there 😃

You'll likely want that anyway, so a rename and downloading Fleet should get you sorted.
