Hello! Happy to help you troubleshoot. It may be worth clearing out your docker environment to make sure you're getting a clean start:
docker-compose down
docker system prune --volumes
docker-compose up
I'm AFK at the moment. I've done all that during my tests during the day
You may also want to update to the latest version of `fleetctl`: https://fleetdm.com/get-started and use
fleetctl preview
for your build instead. It uses
under the hood, but provides more functionality and control.
Is there a reason you are choosing to use
I've tried it before
Were you running into the same issues with that?
It's convenient without having to set up DB and redis manually
No I didn't have the same issues then
I'll be back at my keyboard in about half an hour
I’m gping to be AFK a bit longer, but I can tell you I’d love to try the setup from here instead: https://fleetdm.com/docs/deploying/installation - although it is a bit gruesome to setup MySQL and redis manually…
I'd have no problem with the hassle for a production setup, but for a demo/PoC for management and ITsec I'd rather not do it
Thanks for the feedback. I'll share with the team. Let me discuss with them and see if there are any tips to make this easier for you.
A couple of ideas... 1. If you need to deploy to AWS, we have an example Terraform repo that can help: https://github.com/fleetdm/fleet/tree/main/tools/terraform 2. If you're okay running the demo/PoC locally, you could stand up
fleetctl preview
on your machine and expose it via something like ngrok: https://ngrok.com/
3. Consider running Fleet on render.com. https://github.com/edwardsb/fleet-on-render/blob/main/render.yaml will stand up a completely working fleet instance on render in about 3-5 minutes.
I really have to set it up on-prem, so all cloud-solutions is out
That rules out 1 and 3
ngrok might be a viable option, except you may run into certificate issues...
But doesn’t
fleetctl preview
require MySQL and redis?
Yes, it does. You wouldn't be able to use your own instances, but you could modify the ones
fleetctl preview
Ngrok IS an issue:
So, does
fleetctl preview
setup MySQL and redis as well?
So, kind of similar to osquery-in-a-box then?
So what are the requirements for me to run
fleetctl preview
then? npm? docker?
fleetctl preview
under the hood, and provides other helpful functionality
To run
fleetctl preview
you need to have Docker installed
This is what the default
fleetctl preview
docker instances will look like:

Ok, and how do I get
on my Linux-server then?
Yes using
Ok, I’ll try that then. Would I be able to get osquery-data from actual clients in to a preview-instance?
You should only be using fleetctl preview. It mechanizes osquery-in-a-box and abstracts the complexity away.
Hmm, it fails…

What version of nodejs do you have installed?
What version is required - and why wouldn’t that version be mentioned in the documentation?
Ok, I updated to v12 of nodejs, but got another error:

Taking a look at this, will be with you shortly.
It appears that I have too old a docker version - upgrading now

Oh, well - I’ll try more tomorrow. It’s almost 6:30pm here now and I need to have dinner with the family
I'll keep looking into this and will add any thoughts to this thread.
Although at this point it looks like it's just Redhat blocking the server.
Nope the directory that ought to contain the rpms at docker is empty...
I'll see if I can find anything helpful.
Sounds like you're blocked by Docker for the time being. Please let me know how it goes, and if there's anything else I can assist with.
Will do
Ok, finally found this:
Adding the CentOS repo does solve it
Great, glad you got it solved!
