Splunk DB Connect: Why is the Java Bridge no longer running after upgrading from Splunk 6.1.3 to 6.2.1?

I setup db connect on Splunk Enterprise 6.1.3 and it was working perfectly. I upgraded to 6.2.1 and the Java Bridge won't start any longer. I have completely uninstalled the app and reinstalled and it still won't install.

I am running Java 1.7 on RHEL 6.5. I tried removing the state.xml file as seen in many of the forums but it didn't help. I've looked in the logs but I'm not seeing anything relevant...but may be looking in the wrong place.

I worked with Splunk support and found a solution. By adding the "interval=1" line to dbx/local/inputs.conf it made it so db connect would start immediately instead of having the delay we were seeing.

[script://./bin/jbridge_server.py]
disabled = 0
interval = 1

Hi, an uninstall and reinstall of DB Connect might help. Alternatively, if you file a support ticket we might be able to see what's going on.
