License Free and pool size

New Member

Hi,
I tryed Splunk with the trial licence. After 60 days I switched to a the free licence. Since then, I've got the following message :
Error in 'litsearch' command: Your Splunk license expired or you have exceeded your license limit too many times

When I look on the licensing menu :
I'm in the : Free license group with no licensing alert but 13 license window warnings reported by 1 indexer.
the warning display :
This pool has exceeded its configured poolsize=0 bytes. A warning has been recorded for all members.

I have deativated all sources so I've got no input data on my splunk server.

Please help me to fix this problem? I don't know what I have to do?

Thanks

Thibaud

You will need to look at the age of the warnings. With the free license you can only have 3 within the past 30 days. With the enterprise license you can have 5. It is possible that you had 4 and when you switched to free the capability to search was lost because your limit dropped from 5 to 3.

Hello ,
Thanks for your answer.
So I have to apply a reset licence?

Yes, or wait until you have fewer than 3 in 30 days.
Not sure if you can get a reset license for the free version, but it would not hurt to ask Splunk Support for one.

You could just reinstall splunk (backup your current version) and copy over your customizations.
