Commands broken after upgrade to splunk 6

I just got done deploying Splunk 6, and it turns out that the couple of inputs I had using this plugin are now broken.

One of the scripts being used calls out to another server via SSH and formats the output like this:

Ready,100
Not Ready,54

After the upgrade, the indexed output looks like:

ssh: /opt/splunk/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: version `OPENSSL_1.0.0' not found (required by ssh)
ssh: /opt/splunk/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: version `OPENSSL_1.0.0' not found (required by ssh)
Ready,
Not Ready,

Further, the "Command" option under Inputs is no longer there, meaning I can no longer configure this source.

Any idea what I need to do in order to fix this?

You're going to have to do a workaround by changing your external commands. You can change the call to ssh if you're using bash from:

ssh abc defg hijk

to

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH ssh abc defg hijk

if you're using Linux, to make sure the OS checks the default system path before it the Splunk path. If you have multiple calls to ssh or other commands that use openssl shared libraries, you can instead just export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH at the top of your script instead.

@richgalloway can you open a new question on that and include error messages? I'm collecting issues now and am opening an internal bug.

Thanks Gerald.

Also to add....

The Command Modular Input not showing up is due to a bug caused by the DB Connect app that causes all Modular Inputs , although they are installed and working fine, to not show up in the Manager UI. You can still browse to the Mod Input setup manually.

This bug is currently being fixed.

Is there a reason you wouldn't rather do

unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH

instead?

On MacOS, the relevant variable is DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH and on HP-UX it's SHLIB_PATH and on AIX it's LIBPATH.

I'm having a similar problem with the Asset Discovery app. It appears Splunk 6 does not come with the right OpenSSL library.
