App launcher screen is blank


I've just installed Splunk on 64-bit Solaris 10.

The install was successful, and I've started splunk using the CLI command.

However, after logging in, http://servername:8000/en-US/app/launcher/home shows a blank page.

I've tried this in Chrome and Firefox, and also restarted both splunkd and splunkweb, but the problem persists.

Any idea what the problem could be?

The page source does show some HTML, posted below in case it's useful:

Had exactly same response installing Splunk ver splunk-4.3.4 on Fedora. End result was to de-install/re-install. Did an strace beforehand and found some files missing with the original installation. Hope this helps...

Try clearing your web browser cache.

EDIT: For ambiguity...

There is nothing (firewall, load-balancer) in front of the webserver. We are connecting directly to it from another machine on our LAN.

As a diagnostic, I opened a browser on the machine running Splunk, and logged in at http://localhost:8000, with the same result.

Are you hitting this server via a load-balancer? Is there something in front of your Splunk webserver?

Thanks Lamar, but unfortunately that didn't make a difference.
