I’m trying to bring up the Cisco UCS app, and Splunk seems to be unhappy with the python scripted input.

I figured this one out on my own. A temporary lapse in my instruction following skills caused this error: The Splunk_TA_CiscoUCS app MUST be run on a Splunk Lightweight Forwarder, Heavy Forwarder, or other full Splunk instance. I was attempting to run it on a Universal Forwarder, and from there I got the weird error message. Running the app on a full instance as noted in the documentation solved this issue.
