How to monitor root-owned logs while running Splunk as a non-root user for Amazon Linux AMI?
what are the permission required for non-root user to run the environment ?
whatever user that is running splunk needs r/w access to $SPLUNK_HOME, and read to whatever root owned logs.
best guess here is to create a group that has read access to those logs, but retains root ownership, and add the splunk user to that group in linux.
Thanks for the answer. What is the command for the same?
@vin02 - that would be an OS command, not a Splunk command, so it would depend on your operating system.
we are using Amazon Linux.
If you need help with Linux commands, you could start with the AWS Linux documentation
You could also use any reference for Cento OS, and that is the base for AWS Linux
