Minemeld install on Ubuntu 18.04 issue

L3 Networker

Hi All,


I have installed minemeld on Ubuntu 18.04 using Ansible Playbook. I have followed the instuctions on https://github.com/PaloAltoNetworks/minemeld-ansible#howto-on-ubuntu-1804 and rebooted the device but I get the Error Checking Credentials: Bad Gateway error.


Looking at the supervisorrd.conf status I see minemeld-web in a fatal status. Looking ath the minemeld-web log I see the following:

root@ld1-mm01:/opt# tail /opt/minemeld/log/minemeld-web.log
File "/opt/minemeld/engine/0.9.64/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/minemeld/flask/main.py", line 3, in <module>

I have followed instructions to downgrade pip but that does not work.


There are instructions to do the following pull (not sure how to do this or if it is necessary):



Any advice on how I can get this working?

I found a solution which works (at least on VMWare Workstation - trying now on a live deployment):


Download (http://releases.ubuntu.com/18.04/) and install Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Server.


Run through the ansible setup. Reboot and test - in my first install, Gui would not come up.


Re-run the ansible setup from the beging (including updates), reboot and test (Gui would come up and I could log in with default credentials.)
