I am very new to ELK and still learning, so please be forbearing with my probably stupid questions.
I tried to find my issue within the search here, did not find it, so I guess it might be a very small issue.
Here we go:
I installed Metricbeat which is running fine.
I wanted to set up the example Kibana dashboards for Metricbeat now, via the command:
metricbeat setup --dashboards
This results in this error and I do not know what is going wrong:
Exiting: Error importing Kibana dashboards: fail to create the Kibana loader: Error creating Kibana client: fail to get the Kibana version:HTTP GET request to /api/status fails: fail to execute the HTTP GET request: Get http://localhost:5601/api/status: dial tcp 127.0.0.1:5601: getsockopt: connection refused. Response: .
The metricbeat.yml is also cofigured to setup.dashboards.enabled: true in the Dashboards section.
