Issue with ECE Setup on RHEL 7.3

I've tried for the last few days to get ECE to install

I'm now stuck at the following point:

Checking Minimum required memory... PASSED

  • Running Bootstrap container

    Process bootstrap logging processor:

Hi @califrangis

It might be a permissions issue. Make sure that the user you're using to perform the installation belong to the docker group, has write permissions /mnt/data/ and is a sudoer (the latter is required to install docker and xfs on the host).

Also could you also run the installation a again with a --debug flag and post the output here?


I was able to get it to work using a different user id and the fixes you suggested.

now to get logstash running
