Problem enabling boot-start with user parameter

Communicator

I'm trying to get splunk running as a user other than root but whenever I try the following command...

splunk enable boot-start -user splunk

I get this error...

First-time-run has not finished.  Ignore this error when previewing migration - exiting.

I can see other questions here with the same problem but none of them have been answered. Does anyone have a fix for this short of manually editing the scripts generated without specifying the user?

In order to use this command, you need to be logged in as root, since you're adding something to /etc/init.d/. To run this command, simply sudo to root, run it again and it'll install.
