How do I correct error "Error in 'rest' command: Invalid argument: '/services/server/info' "?

New Member

I've recently installed splunk 6.5.1 on windows 2008 R2. I've also enabled 'Health Check' in Monitoring Console, but any Health Check search that includes something like "| rest $rest_scope$ /services/server/info " fails with -- Error in 'rest' command: Invalid argument: '/services/server/info' --
I am unable to locate any directory called /services. Where can I get this configured?

Hi lessthan80,
the $rest_scope$ is a token you can get results with just the command | rest /services/server/info for example.
this document will elaborate and explain in full http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.2/DMC/Customizehealthcheck
