Trying to follow the guide to install a Graylog Sidecar, I wind up getting stuck on the step to “unconfigure the default system service” for NXlog, specifically:
$ sudo chown -R nxlog.nxlog /var/spool/collector-sidecar/nxlog chown: cannot access ‘/var/spool/collector-sidecar/nxlog’: No such file or directory
collector-sidecar keyword (i.e. not
graylog-sidecar as it seems to be properly called as of the new, baked-in version) makes me wonder if this is a leftover from the previous versions of the guide and so if it is still necessary to
chown -R nxlog.nxlog some
.../nxlog file or directory, only the updated path isn’t in the new guide?
(It seems like this might be a necessary step, as it is one of the steps meant to take
nxlogout of the control of the system - my collector just failed, saying it “can’t restart since another instance is already running”.)
