Unknown error message from Admin Manager

Communicator

Hi,

has anyone seen the error message below?

ERROR AdminManager - Argument "actual_only" is not supported by this handler.

Any ideas what may cause this?

Cheers,
Andy

Sometimes I see errors like this if Splunk was started/stopped by root, when it normally runs as a different user. Some of the files become owned by root and then odd things don't work. In Linux, there is a simple fix. Assuming that

Splunk is installed in /opt/splunk

Splunk should run as user splunkit

you are signed in as a user with sudo privileges

cd /opt sudo chown -R splunkit splunk

Of course, the problem could be something entirely different...

I checked on that already. the permissions are ok.
we get the error on all SH-cluster members although not equally spreaded.

@kochera we solved this issue by enabling the permissions
listacceleratesearch
for the users generating some errors.

As from what we could see, splunk was trying to see if the search had summaries, but user running the search did not have permission to check this.

Thanks to Maarten @mhoogcarspel_splunk from support for pointing in the right direction.

Specifically, we found this in the audit log, you can check with this, in the timeframe of the error:

index=audit action=*acceleratesearch*
| stats values(info) values(action) BY user
