EMC VNX Splunk Add-On Unable to configure setup: vnx_data failing to start

We have setup the VNX config file using the following syntax

network_addr = 10.1.##.##
username = VNXUSER
password = VNXPASS
platform = VNX Block
scope = 0
site = SF

Does anyone have experience with this app and may be able to provide some input on why it is failing to send any of the specified data?

Add inputs on the Splunk HF server and not from the user interface (UI) and also make sure to remove scope from inputs and restart Splunk process on HF and it works.

Note: Use the actual credentials that is used to connect to block array and do not use default (main) index. Try using a specific index for VNX with loglevel as DEBUG.

Below configuration works.

network_addr = 10.X.X.X
username = VNXUser
password = VNXPass
platform = VNX Block
index = vnx_test
loglevel = DEBUG
site = SF
disabled = 0
