I have installed Elastic search and Kibana on Fedora 27 and got them to work. But I would like to do network monitoring with packetbeat. When I follow the rpm install instructions as per : https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/packetbeat/current/packetbeat-installation.html
The bin file gets installed under /etc/packetbeat but the packetbeat.yml file under /home/user/packetbeat.
then I was unable to run ./packetbeat to import index or set up dashboards. as they weren't in the same dir.
So I downloaded the linux tar file extracted that to a dir in the /home/usr and hey presto the .yml and bin files were in the same dir so I could run a few commands. But now I can't import index nor the dashboard. Yes I have x-pack installed and yes I have set the usernames and password in the yml accordingly?
All help appreciated.
