Splunk Free Enterprose download.
Trying to start Splunk - non-root user. To "Start and Show Plunk" I get the error: Can't unlink pid file "/Applications/Splunk/var/run/splunk/splunkd.pid": Permission denied.
Changed it to 755 via sudo chmod 755 splunkd.pid and I try to restart, get the same error
Running MACPRO Mavericks.
Any help is greatly apprciated
you need to
/Application/Splunk directory to the non-root user after you stopped splunk. Try this in a
terminal as the non-root user:
sudo chown -R non-root-user /Application/Splunk /Application/Splunk/bin/splunk start
You also need to modify the
/Application/Splunk/etc/splunk-launch.conf file to set the userid which runs splunk.
Hope this helps ...
You'll get this as a consequence of running splunk as root, or as a bootable service.
