I’ve tried to install Bro on a Ubuntu 16.04 virtual machine (VirtualBox) with following guide:
After the installation, I started broctl and tryped “install”, but I reveiced an error message:
Host key verification failed. Error: cannot create (some of the) directories /usr/local/bro,/usr/local/bro/logs,/usr/local/bro/spool,/usr/local/bro/spool/tmp on node bro
I want to run Bro on a single machine (so no cluster at all), I checked the node.cfg, it looks like this: [bro] type=standalone host=localhost interface=eth0
Of course I installed a SSH Server (apt-get install openssh-server), and successfully connected to my VM with several divices.
There was a common problem in this Mailing-List, but unfortunatly it remaind unsolved... [http://mailman.icsi.berkeley.edu/pipermail/bro/2015-July/008697.html](http://mailman.icsi.berkeley.edu/pipermail/bro/2015-July/008697.html)
I'm new to linux and bro, also, english is not my native language, so please forgive me my faults. :)
I would be glad to hear from you guys!
