Installation of filebeat 5.3.1 in windows 10?


(Yaswanth ) #1

Hi,

I installed filebeat in F:\filebeat-5.3.1-windows-x86_64\Filebeat when i executed the install-service-filebeat.ps1 in powershell it opened and closed immediately i dont know why this is happening ?

Even i changed the path.data to F:\filebeat-5.3.1-windows-x86_64\Filebeat in install-service-filebeat.ps1 file.

Thanks

Did you follow the Getting Started Guide?


(Yaswanth ) #3

Yeah i followed the guide but i pasted in different folder rather than C . I think i won't be a problem. The problem is i cant able to run the script in powershell whenever i am trying to run the powershell is opening and closing without showing any error.

Thanks

How are you executing the install-service-filebeat.ps1 script?

You should open a PowerShell console. cd to the dir containing the script. Then execute PowerShell.exe -ExecutionPolicy UnRestricted -File .\install-service-filebeat.ps1.

Still it is showing error. Do i need to change any setting in install-service-filebeat.ps1 file?
I also tried like this Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted install-service-filebeat.ps1 but not working
Thanks

And what is the output if you just try to execute the script?

PS > .\install-service-filebeat.ps1

Could it be an issue with your PATH? What do these show?

PS> Get-ChildItem Env:

PS> $PsHome

I managed to run my script by setting set-ExecutionPolicy ByPass When i installed the script it is showing like this

PS F:\filebeat-5.3.1-windows-x86_64\filebeat> set-ExecutionPolicy ByPass

Execution Policy Change
The execution policy helps protect you from scripts that you do not trust. Changing the execution policy might expose

Is this means the filebeat is running ? How can i check whether it is running or not because it is showing Status : Stopped
Thanks

The installation script only creates the service for you. From that point you should resume following the Getting Started guide at Step 2 (configuration). You need to configure it, test your config, then start the service.

Thanks

When i started the service in services.msc it is not showing the service is disabled and now it is throwing error like this

PS F:\filebeat-5.3.1-windows-x86_64\filebeat> PowerShell.exe -ExecutionPolicy UnRestricted -File .\install-service-fileb
eat.ps1
