New TA-nix app - couldn't set locale correctly

Explorer

I have deployed the latest SplunkTAnix app to all of our Unix hosts and I am seeing an error when any of them attempt to run the scripts that came with it:

ERROR ExecProcessor - message from "/opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/SplunkTAnix/bin/lastlog.sh" couldn't set locale correctly

It appears all of the scripts calls the file common.sh which has the following line:

LANG="en_US.UTF-8"

Any ideas on how to get rid of this error message?

Same issue here and I'm using Solaris 10 SPARC.

Have you verified that the user running the splunkd process has the correct permission set to change the LANG variable? Also double check the scripts have the x permission set for the owner. I've run into this issue before. If common.sh isn't allowed to run (no x permission) then the lastlog.sh may fail when it calls on common.sh at the set locale line.

The common.sh script needs to set the locale to LANG="en_US.UTF-8" You are most likely missing the locale on Solaris and it needs to be installed. Run the "locale -a" command to see the installed locales.
