FireEye error message: "Could not load configuration" - why?

Builder

This error is occurring about every .5 second in splunkd.log on one of my Search Heads:

WARN MongoModificationsTracker - Could not load configuration for collection 'acknotescoll' in application 'TA-FireEye_v3'. Collection will be ignored.

I just upgraded to 6.6.3, but this error has been going on unnoticed for some time.

I too had this same issue. I created a collections.conf in TA app (found it in the app but not in TA). Errors disappeared. Found no mention of collection in documentation or video guides. I am using the TA to parse so you can definitely do more configuration.

The content is:

#
# Splunk app KV Store collection file
#

[acknotescoll]

Creating this config file worked.

I also get the same error for the Alert Manager app.

The app probably expects you to define the collections (KVStore database entries) before that part works. Read the docs for the app and the any README stuff in the app directories. Look for a config.xml file and read/run that, too.
