IOError: [Errno 30] Read-only file system


I am not able to get into splunkwebGUI.

When i type the splunkwebGUI address in browser it is showing me following error:

IOError: [Errno 30] Read-only file system: '/opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/session-dde9fc7133cdc93e076757d02eeefba734998501.lock'

I am not sure what the error is , can anyone please help me by telling hw to resolve this.

Thanks in advance

Hi adityapavan18

looks like your 'splunkweb' process owner does not have write permission on that folder. check filesystem permission von /opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/
