Splunk DB Connect 2: Why is the Setup page saying I have the wrong JRE Installation Path?

Communicator

Hi guys

I'm trying to set up Splunk DB Connect 2, but I can't save the Setup because it's saying that the JRE Installation Path is wrong. Splunk is running under Windows with Java SE 8.

How to solve this?

Any help, i'll be grateful

Here's how you can configure it manually:

1) Go to: C:\Program Files\Splunk\etc\apps\splunk_app_db_connect\local
2) Create a new file name app.conf (if you create it using right click -> new -> text document, ensure that Windows Explorer is not hiding known file extensions, or it'll really be called app.conf.txt and it won't work)
3) Open the app.conf file in a text edit and add the following to it:

[install]
is_configured = 1

4) Save and close the app.conf file
5) Open the following file in a text editor: C:\Program Files\Splunk\etc\apps\splunk_app_db_connect\local\inputs.conf
6) Update the following

 [rpcstart://default]
javahome = C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_60

7) Restart Splunk via command prompt

"C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\splunk.exe" restart
