I tried to install DB connector in splunk.
However, it failed to restart splunk after installing it.
Messages are as below.

[root@localhost ~]# /opt/splunk/bin/splunk start

Locking test failed on filesystem in path /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk with code '7'. Please file a case online at http://www.splunk.com/page/submit_issue

Checking filesystem compatibility...

I'd like to ask the reason and how to solve the problem.

Hi leujinlove,

Have you tried to use "chown" command on your splunk folder? I've encountered one like this before and the root cause was there's no clear owner of splunk folder and files underneath it. I might be wrong, though.

chown -R <user_to_start_splunk>:<group_name> /opt/splunk

Best Regards,

Vincent
