I have done my first installation with grafana. My goal is to monitor my VMware environment. For that, I have installed a Ubuntu VM an Grafana and Telegraf from this tutorial: https://computingforgeeks.com/how-to-monitor-vmware-esxi-with-grafana-and-telegraf/
On Grafana I can add the Datasource and the test is success: “Data source is working”.
Now, I will import an existing VMware Dashboard. This one: VMware vSphere - VMs | Grafana Labs
But when I import, the following error occurs: Template init failed - e.replace is not a function
My version: Grafana v6.7.4 (8e44bbc)
That dashboard says
VMware vSphere - VMs
VMware vSphere Dashboard - VMs (Grafana 9.x / InfluxDB v2.0)
Oh shit, my fault. I installed an old version… I have tried to update the version by the following commands (Use Ubuntu):
sudo apt-get install -y adduser libfontconfig1
sudo dpkg -i grafana-enterprise_9.2.4_amd64.deb
I become no error, but the version is also the old one. Any ideas?
I am not sure there is an upgrade path from v6 to 9?
Also why are you upgrading to enterprise?
I would not go the upgrade route. Just install new version of grafana parallel to existing one. Is there anything you need in the ancient version
I have installed a new version, not it works. Thank you
