JMS Messaging Modular Input: How to resolve multiple Python errors such as "[Error 87] The parameter is incorrect" when adding a new modular input?

New Member

We have an issue when we add new JMS modular input. Everything looks ok but it still shows JMS errors connecting. Additionally it blocks messages from coming in for All the other modular inputs when i enable the new one.

Also we have tested this in our QA environment. It only doesn't work in Prod.

Inputs.conf:

[jms://queue/QUEUE_NAME]
browse_mode = all
browse_queue_only = 0
durable = 0
index = INDEXNAME
index_message_header = 0
index_message_properties = 0
init_mode = jndi
jms_connection_factory_name = SplunkQConnectionFactory
jndi_initialcontext_factory = com.sun.jndi.fscontext.RefFSContextFactory
jndi_provider_url = file:///F:/splunk/etc/apps/jms_ta/local/Hadoop/prod
sourcetype = hadoopmon_prod
strip_newlines = 0
jndi_user = USERNAME
jndi_pass = PASSWORD
disabled = 0
destination_pass = USERNAME
destination_user = PASSWORD
browse_frequency = -1
hec_batch_mode = 0
hec_https = 0
output_type = stdout

Is Java installed and on the PATH or JAVA_HOME env variable set ?

Does the user you are running Splunk as have permission to execute Java ?

Yes. the user have permission to execute Java. Additionally i have noticed whenever i enable the new input, it kills the python process. Any idea why it would do that?

I would like to give more info regarding the environment that we have. So we have a jms-ta add-on on two of the heavy forwarders. We already have 23 inputs created on them which works completely fine. Now i am trying to add one more input and it won't work. All the binding files and the inputs seems right. And there are no errors regarding that as it's working in our lower environment.
