Hi,

Just installed the app on a universal forwarder and getting this error in the log. Any idea what the issue is? Is there any configuration I need to edit other than inputs.conf? Thanks.

Server has Python 2.7.5 and I created symlink: splunkforwarder/bin/python2.7 -> /usr/bin/python

file_meta_data_modular_input.log:

UPDATE:

I looked at the code file_meta_data.py, and removed the file_filter=file_filter in these lines. That seems working.

if recurse:
results, new_latest_time = self.get_files_data(file_path, logger=self.logger,
latest_time=latest_time,
must_be_later_than=must_be_later_than,
file_hash_limit=file_hash_limit,
depth_limit=depth_limit)
else:
result, new_latest_time = self.get_file_data(file_path, logger=self.logger,
latest_time=latest_time,
must_be_later_than=must_be_later_than,
file_hash_limit=file_hash_limit)
