Logging Fundamentals - sudo on the VM

Hello,

I'm taking Logging fundamentals class and I'm currently stuck at installing filebeat package on the ubuntu node since I cannot sudo. Is there a password associated to it ?

Thank you,
Charan

Hi Charan,

you don't need sudo to run Filebeat on the lab environment. You can use the instructions from lab 2 step 4 for downloading and unpacking Filebeat as follows:

curl -L -O https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/beats/filebeat/filebeat-7.2.0-linux-x86_64.tar.gz

tar -xzf filebeat-7.2.0-linux-x86_64.tar.gz

cd filebeat-7.2.0-linux-x86_64

Best,
Andre

Thank you. That helped.
