hunk installation

New Member

Hi,
I installed the trial version for splunk&hunk without the license.
Now I'm trying to follow the tutorial in Hunk-6.0-HunkUserManual.
I'm trying to perform step 5: configuring an HDFS provider.
I can't see the option virtual indexes under settings -> data
What can be the problem?

You have to add the Hunk license in order to see the virtual index information. See http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Hunk/6.0.1/Hunk/LicenseHunk.

I have the same problem. Downloaded the 6.1.0-206983 archive, unzipped it, and restarted Splunk. The Hunk trial license shows up as valid, but the "Virtual Indexes" link isn't in the GUI.

In 6.1 Hunk and Splunk are two separate packages, thus Hunk functionality cannot be enabled by simply adding a license to a Splunk Enterprise package.

This happened to me during beta, I had obtained the wrong version. Are you on Linux 64 bit?
