Hi all,

i have configured and started the Splunk Add-on for VMware v 4.0.5 on two heavy forwarders.

Unfortunately will the port 8008 not be available after restarting the Splunk instance. I get everytime following entries in splunkd.log

Does someone any idea to solve this issue with Authentication failed?

Kind regards

yes this was helpful after adding following line the port was open and data was indexed fine .

/opt/splunk/etc/apps/SA-Hydra/local
-bash-4.2$ cat inputs.conf
[script://$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/SA-Hydra/bin/bootstrap_hydra_gateway.py]
disabled = 0
passAuth = <splunk admin user>

Please refer to this URL(Troubleshoot the Splunk Add-on for VMware ), it should be able to help resolving the issues that you are having, because I can see in the error message there is splunk.AuthenticationFailed appeared in the error log that you posted.

Check $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_vmware/default/inputs.conf

[script://$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_vmware/bin/ta_vmware_hierarchy_agent.py]
passAuth = splunkd-user
