I have installed the DB connect app on my instance of Splunk. I am facing an error message that reads "Cannot communicate with task server, please check your settings issue."
I found the below error in the logs.
ERROR ExecProcessor - message from
And here is another error:
ERROR ExecProcessor - message from "/home/iapsp02/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/linux_x86_64/bin/server.sh" 03:08:51.576 [main] INFO com.splunk.dbx.utils.TrustManagerUtil - action=load_key_manager_succeed
It looks like a connection issue from your splunk server to DB server
App deployed on same server. iptables/firewalld service already stopped on server. Java 1.8 is also installed.
I am getting same error with Splunk 7.1.2 and DB Connect 3.1.3. After getting this error you are not able to setup new connections ? What problem are you facing ?
When i open db connect app, i could see this error.
"Cannot communicate with task server, please check your settings" , and one more error is "Bad gateway"
Do you have the right JDBC driver installed?
You need to make sure that you have oracle JRE or JDK. Additionally task server runs on port 9998 by default if this port is occupied by other process then task server will not start in that case you need to use other port for task server.
DB Connect wants the JRE, not the JDK.
I asked about the JDBC driver, NOT Java. They're different things, installed differently. See http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DBX/3.1.3/DeployDBX/Installdatabasedrivers
