Hi, I worked my way down to Module 6. When trying to get influxDB with telegraf running I run into a problem:
I copied and pasted the command:
telegraf –config http://192.168.2.79:8086/api/v2/telegrafs/0a0541047614b000
and get the error:
error parsing url [“192.168.2.79:8086”]: parse “192.168.2.79:8086”: first path segment in URL cannot contain colon
what am I doing wrong. There are several post on the the sddressing this problem, but they don’t really help.
Did you follow all the commands until that point?
Commands on page 234, 235, and 236?
How did you copy and paste the command? Click on Copy to clipboard and then paste it on the terminal window with a right click on the mouse. I just tested my URL and it works just fine.
I also tested your URL and it works just fine. Can you show me a printscreen of your command on the terminal window?
To share a printscreen you can upload it to google drive and share a link to it.
Hi Sara, thank you for the quick response! 🙂 Now I succeeded! I uninstalled influxdb and telegraf, went back to page 225 and started all over gain. This time I used SSH via putty and not a terminal using VNC. Everything went as you had described. No idea, what my mistake was. Maybe it was the VNC connection.
Anyway, thanks again and I really enjoy this course!
