I assume attachments don't work... here is the test output:

Good Afternoon,

I am trying to make documentation for installing a bro cluster configuration, and receive the attached error when trying to install via broctl. I can log into both of my worker nodes from the bro manager via ssh fine, and without a password...

Thank you,
