Can't launch Splunk for Blue Coat app

New Member

Hi...

I followed the setup guide for the BlueCoat app, and Splunk is getting the events just fine. (Results are returned in search when I run a sourcetype=bcoat_proxysg search). However when I try to start the BlueCoat app from the launcher I get the following error:

**

500 Internal Server Error KeyError:
'SplunkforBlueCoat' This page was
linked to from
http://{myhostname}:8000/en-US/app/launcher/home.
Debugging information You are using
{myhostname}:8000, which is connected
to splunkd @000 at
https://127.0.0.1:8089 on Wed Apr 20
15:19:21 2011.

**

Any ideas?

Being as you are getting a 500 ISE I would start with the "webaccess.log" and "webservice.log". You are looking for any error conditions that could shed some more light on your issue.

Try running a search against the internal index for errors. For example the following tends to be good at finding problems: index=_internal error

What specifically am I looking for? I only saw a couple references in splunkd.log, and didnt seem like anything too pertinent.

Have you looked at the splunk log files? $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/* ?
