Init scripts for starting/stopping Splunk in Solaris

New Member

Do you have any readily available scripts that I can use?

As a standard service, you can simply execute:

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk enable boot-start

as the root user and Splunk will generate an appropriate script into /etc/init.d/ and link it to all the right /etc/rc locations. You can add a -user username option to generate the script to run as a non-root user.

Do you intend to have Splunk managed as an SMF (with a manifest and so on) or as a legacy service (with a startup script in /etc/init.d)?
