Hi. Which database are you connecting to? You might try looking in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/dbx/bin/lib directory to see if the driver has been installed. For more info on driver installation, see http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DBX/latest/DeployDBX/Installdrivers

Splunk DB Connect is installed on my machine but I'm not sure if JRE is been Installed or the DB Drivers are installed.
Please guide me through the process of setting up the Splunk DBConnect,

Hi. You should be able to connect Splunk DB Connect to your Oracle db.

Here are the basic steps for setting up DB Connect:

  1. Install the DB Connect App. (you already have the app installed, so ignore this step)
  2. Install the JDBC drivers for Oracle. For instructions on downloading and installing the JDBC driver, see: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DBX/latest/DeployDBX/Installdrivers
  3. Setup your connection to the database. See:http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DBX/latest/DeployDBX/Addadatabaseconnection

Once you have your database connection established, you can run queries against the database, and setup database inputs and outputs that let you add and index your database data in Splunk.

Hope this helps.
