All Apps and Add-ons

Splunk DB Connect: The GUI says "the java bridge server is not running", but why can I use the app and see the process running?

lagnone_splunk
Splunk Employee
Splunk Employee

This also applies to DBX v2 and the RPC service

The GUI tells me "the java bridge server is not running" and also "RPC status: down", but I can use both of the apps and I see the processes running! What is going on?

This is probably due to having no localhost setup for 127.0.0.1 in hosts file.

Cat your /etc/hosts file and check that localhost and localhost.localdomain are next to 127.0.0.1

Example

127.0.0.1 lagnone-splunk.splunk.com lagnone-splunk
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
10.10.10.10 lagnone-splunk.splunk.com lagnone-splunk
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
