Lab-mysql server: getting access errors

listing contents of the file,
I get the following error:

How do I fix this.

Which course is this?

Hi Pablo,
Not sure which Lab course in the Elastic Observability Engineer course. Probably moved ahead with the Labs now.

Anyway, is there a way I can use/access sudo in the labs so to allow access to the file or change permissions?

Kind regards,

Patrick

If this is the metricbeat modules lab (Lab 2.2) where you set up monitoring of the mysql instance, re-check step 11? That's where you have to set a password for metricbeat to access mysql. A mistype, and metricbeat may try to fall back on other logins it's programmed to attempt. Otherwise, if that IP address isn't the address of your Strigo environment, it may simply be an outside attacker (hence why I'm not pasting mysql's root password here in a public forum). The "cloudera" attempt sort of makes it seem like some bot found your instance. Don't worry, though, it's protected.
