No Mosquitto on Openhabian?

After a seemingly successful install of Openhabian I just wanted to check the Mosquitto server that I thought was integrated with Openhabian, but MQTT Spy couldnt connect to it.
So I SSH’d the status with: sudo systemctl status mosquitto
and was told:
Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory)
Active: inactive (dead)
Just to make sure I did a start of the mosquitto server:
~$ sudo systemctl start mosquitto
Failed to start mosquitto.service: Unit mosquitto.service failed to load: No such file or directory.

Hmmmm where is my mosquitto server?

You have to install the MQTT broker Mosquitto at openhabbian-config.


Fabian, thanks, yes found it in the mean time and was just coming back to remove my post.
