Hi I checked splunk today to find the following error, however I did not exceed any quota's. I had a trial licence and today switched to a free licence. I've read other posts about this and have seen I would have to wait 30 days for the violations to clear. This is not right?
Can this be rectified?
I only saw the alert yesterday ? It instructed me to apply the free licence, which I did and I restarted splunk.
I received the errors shown above the same moment I changed to the free licence. To me it looks like I'm getting a warning for a few day that my licence is about to expire, it expires and for 3 days I exceed 0 bytes and the violations are imposed.
The data I ingest is tiny, maybe 2-3 MB a day max, today for example only 1 MB has been ingested. There is no way I have violated the terms and conditions. This is not a good advertisement for the product.
Can these violation be removed or will I have to wait 30 days ??
Splunk Enterprise Trial gives you access to a number of features that are not available in Splunk Free. When you switch, be aware of the following:
When you switch to splunk free from a Trail Enterprise license follow the steps below:
Log in to Splunk Web as a user with admin privileges and navigate to Settings > Licensing.
Click Change license group at the top of the page.
Select Free license and click Save.
You are prompted to restart.
You can also go through the link of splunk documentation below:
My point is I have switched to the Free Licence, and now my data won't display. I have not exceeded any quota's and have only received this error since my Enterprise licence had expired before I moved over to the free.
This violation is because I exceeded quota's on an expired licence ?? That can't be correct, the licence had expired.
Can you reset my voilations on this free Licence ? They are unfair
You were getting this alerts before you moved to free license right?
If yes, then have you restarted your Splunk service after uploading free license?
And are you getting this violations alerts as soon as you have uploaded free license or after some days because you can ingest only 500 MB data per day and in free license only three violations are allowed after that even your free license will expire.
I haven't exceeded any quota's, I just didn't have an active free licence? I was under the impression that after the 15 days of enterprise, it would change to the free licence. I signed in to see my dashboard blank and changed to the free licence straight away.
I don't think this is a justified violation.
