Cloud Insight Telegraf installation on Linux /etc/telegraf/telegraf.conf is empty


Hello, after a new installation on a server I see the telegraf.conf beeing empty. 
Installation did not report any error. Service started but nothing happens. No error messages visible to me. (same behavior on 3 different installations)

steps performed:

sudo -su

proxy configuration (export & /etc/default/telegraf)

Agent  installation (finished without error)


does anyone know how to solve this  ? or how to open a support ticket 🙂


Hello, thanks for your reply.
I have the problems while installing the datacollector  agent on a Linux (RHEL7), not with acquisition unit (acquisition unit is working fine).

2 rhel7.4 physical server where the agent has been installed appeared immediately on the CI , but on 3 virtual server  with 7.9 /7.8 the agent appearing on cloud insights.
No difference in the output of the troubleshooting agent installation:

unfortunately I am still in the trial mode...

Ah, I see. You installed curl, sudo, ping, sha256sum, and dmidecode with yum, right?


You can still reach out to NetApp  Support:
