Unable to start splunkd service


I am first time user and i am unable to start splunkd service, i tried different credentials under log on but i am still getting the following error.

"Windows could not start the splunkd service on local compuiter. Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly"

The other service splunkwed is working fine. Please suggest.

I ran into this. In my case it was because I had changed the account that the splunkd service ran under and had to add that account to Administrators on that PC.


In my case restarting the machine fixed it...
