I run bro 2.4.1 in a manager+proxy+worker configuration. When running
"broctl status" on the manager, I get:
Error: must run broctl only on manager node
Although I am on the manager node.
This seems to arise from around line 163 in
/usr/lib/broctl/BroControl/execute.py, which tries to eliminate the
string "addr:" in ifconfig's output.
Unfortunately, the german localized ifconfig output contains "Adresse:",
so in my case this prefix does not match "addr:" and is not removed.
LANG= broctl status
makes broctl run as expected.
Just wanted to let you know about it, since it took some time to figure
out the problem is l10n related.
