Try splunk stop command first to stop the splunk if it's abruptly started and then try splunk start command


Is it not working or can you just not get to it? Check that your server is actually listening on port 8000, if it isn't something has gone wrong (check the splunkd.log file for clues). If splunk is up and listening on port 8000, it may be that you just can't get to it from where you are, what message does the browser give? If it just hangs and fails to load, it could be a firewall blocking you, if you get something like could not find server, it may be DNS related.
