Splunk ODBC: How do you fix Error 60?

New Member

Hello all, I have problem saying that Error 60 in splunk i.e.

I have installed Splunk ODBC 32-bit with the following configuration for my 32-bit Excel application to access some saved Splunk queries :

Data Source name - Splunk ODBC 32  
login ID - myusername
Password -    ********* 
Server  URL - "http://splunkserver:443" 
Unchecked "Verify Server SSL Certificate"

However, every time I try connecting to Splunk using Query Editor in Excel , I get this error : "[60] Unexpected response from server. Verify the server URL. Ero parsing JSON:Expect either an object or array at root"( )

The server URL is working fine when I checked it directly from the browser.

Please let me know how this can be resolved.

Thanks in advance

You should be connecting to splunkd, not splunkweb. By default that will be https://splunkserver:8089


The URL you indicated start with "http", shouldn't it be "https"?
