SMTP authentication and SPLUNK database separate

New Member

Dear sir,

I am evaluating the SPLUNK with windows version. I want to clarify the following questions:

  1. How to configure SMTP authentication
  2. I want to backup the database which is storing logs with separate partition.

Thanks!

1-I think currently it's not possible to do SMTP auth but it will be in 4.2. The workaround could be to use a scripted alert where inside your script you can configure smtp auth.

2-When Splunk is indexing, the data moves through a series of stages and you have info about backup strategy here http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/latest/Admin/BackupIndexedData and about indexes partition http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/latest/Admin/HowSplunkstoresindexes

hope this help

Hi, about the SMTP auth, your meaning is to edit file alert_actions.conf. And which field has to edit for the auth. Is there any examples for me to do this?

Thanks!
