Metricbeat 7.7 problem

I have installed metricbeat 7.7 on redhat 6.8 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.8 (Santiago)).

After the configuration and restart of the agent,
I'm receiving this error :

Exiting: 1 error: error finding ListUnits Method: error calling dbus: The name org.freedesktop.systemd1 was not provided by any .service files

and the agent gone down.

Any idea ?

Could you please share your configuration formatted using </>?

Seems to be a problem with specific version, with 7.5.2 all things work fine.

Below the configuration :

index.number_of_shards: 1
index.codec: best_compression
#_source.enabled: false

#============================== Kibana

host: "this-elk:5601"

#----------------------------- Redis output --------------------------------

hosts: ["x.x.x.57","x.x.x.58","x.x.x.59"]
password: "redis"
key: "metricbeat"
db: 0
timeout: 5

enabled: true

The service metricset from system module is intented to check systemd service.
RHEL 6.8 is not running systemd hence this metricset won't work.
Comment that out from the configuration.
