Hello.

Good afternoon.  Looking to troubleshoot a DB Connect error "cannot communicate with task server".  Below is the error messages received ...

Checked the DB Connect configuration include JRE Installation Path, JVM Options and Task Server Port (9998) and see no issues.  How can this issue be resolved?

Regards,
Max

Tried looking at $JAVA_HOME.

1 - Ran echo $JAVA_HOME and it is set to /usr/lib/jvm/java-se-8u40-ri

2 - Checked the JRE Installation Path (JAVA_HOME) within DB Connect and it is also set to /usr/lib/jvm/java-se-8u40-ri

Also, tried enabling Port 9998 within inputs.conf.  Added the following stanza to inputs.conf:

[splunktcp-ssl:9998]
compressed = true

But still having issues.
