How do we resolve this ?

How exactly have you installed Graylog?

Also, please try using the latest stable version (Graylog 2.4.3 as of the time of writing) if you’re creating a new cluster.


(Vidya Kirthi) #3

I have used rpm -Uvh graylog-server-2.4.3-1.noarch.rpm to install the rpm .
I tried to install the latest stable server version now and is getting the same error

graylog-server.noarch 2.4.3-1

What’s the complete output of the following command?

rpm -V graylog-server

How exactly are you starting Graylog on your system?


(Vidya Kirthi) #5

I have started the service using below command
sudo systemctl start graylog-server.service

[root@sit-ihs-01 ~]# rpm -V graylog-server
S.5…T. c /etc/graylog/server/server.conf


(Jochen) #6

Try purging the graylog-server completely and reinstall it with yum install graylog-server after the Graylog RPM repository has been added to your system. Or even better, try starting with a fresh installation of RHEL 7.2.

FWIW, I’ve just tested the step-by-step installation guide for CentOS in a Vagrant box and it worked as advertised.
