Cannot connect to /var/run/docker.sock

Hi I'm trying the new 6.0.0-alpha2 beat I try to launch as follows...

docker run
-v ~/filebeat.yml:/usr/share/filebeat/filebeat.yml
-u root

The container logs print Cannot connect to /var/run/docker.sock Docker is definitely running. It's the filebeat container that cannot connect to the host unix:///var/run/docker.sock

Any ideas?

Never mind... We need to map a volume -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock
