In the rest.py file the SPLUNK_HOME environment variable is used

EGGDIR = SPLUNKHOME + "/etc/apps/rest_ta/bin/"

It is most likely that in your pool, the app was not located under the SPLUNK_HOME folder as per pooling config.

There is a known bug with Splunk 6 that is caused by the DB Connect App.

If you have this app installed , it causes all other Modular Inputs to not show up on the Manager->Data Inputs page

Although the Modular Inputs are installed and working fine and can still be navigated to manually :

http://YOURSPLUNKHOST:8000/en-US/manager/launcher/data/inputs/rest

Yes we are using DB Connect.

Do you happen to have DB Connect installed ?

The errors went away but I still don't see REST in "Settings>Data Inputs" just like in your documentation.

Thank you very much for your help by the way!
