In Splunk fudamental 1 - module 4 excercise, user is required to upload files from http://splk.it/f1data to splunk using Add Data - > upload files. When I try to upload the file I get error "Unspecified upload error. Refresh and try again.". I tried the following steps to resolve the issue but it doesn't seems to be working
Tried uploading file from different browser.
Cleared cache and agin tried uploading the file
reinstalled splunk in the unix box
I am using the Splunk enterprise edition ( Free 60 Day trail). Could someone please help me on this.
@philips66 I have added an answer to your question. If you are trying to upload a folder instead of single file you would get the above error. Also if you have non UTF-8 encoded file binary file then also you would get the above error.
