Based on @lmori's great guide for doing a manual install of Minemeld on Ubuntu 14.04, I have taken his configurations and wrapped them in a Vagrantfile for easy foolproof deployment of Minemeld. It's a simple 3 step process:
mkdir Minemeld cd Minemeld vagrant init
Vagrant.configure(2) do |config| config.vm.define "minemeld" do |minemeld| minemeld.vm.box = "ubuntu/trusty64" minemeld.vm.hostname = "minemeld" minemeld.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest: 443, host: 8443 minemeld.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |vb| # Display the VirtualBox GUI when booting the machine vb.gui = false # Customize the amount of memory on the VM: vb.memory = "4096" # Customize the number of vCPUs on the VM: vb.cpus = "2" end minemeld.vm.provision "shell", inline: <<-SHELL sudo sh -c "wget -qO - https://minemeld-updates.panw.io/gpg.key | sudo apt-key add - " sudo add-apt-repository -y "deb http://minemeld-updates.panw.io/ubuntu trusty-minemeld main" sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y minemeld rsyslog-minemeld rsyslog-mmnormalize SHELL end end
vagrant up minemeld
vagrant ssh minemeld
NOTE: From within the Minemeld folder on the host system, you can stop the Minemeld VM by running
vagrant halt minemeld
and completely remove the VM by running
vagrant destroy minemeld
The big advantage with Vagrant is that it eliminates a lot of the room for error and variation of environments that leads to installation issues for many users. I hope this helps more folks to try out Minemeld and begin developing use cases for it.
Hi, I wanted to try out Minemeld, but the Ubuntu install instructions did not work out of the box for me, so I'm reverting to using this Vagrant installation guide instead.
Everything completes without errors. However, upon logging in for the first time with admin / minemeld, I get the following error (attached).
We just fixed a conflict in the installation mechanism, could you try installing using Ansible?
Or wait until early next week when we will release the fix in GA.
