"Couldn't determine $SPLUNK_HOME, perhaps it should be set in environment"

Explorer

$ cd /opt/splunkforwarder/bin
$ ./splunk status
Couldn't determine $SPLUNK_HOME, perhaps it should be set in environment

When ./splunk status command is executed in Splunk Forwarder's bin folder, the above mentioned splunk home error is getting displayed.

Please suggest me a way to resolve this issue.

Thanks

Based on Could not determine $SPLUNK_HOME, perhaps it should be set in environment

It might be related to permissions to run the splunk binary. It says -

The environment variable is not set by default anywhere. In *NIX bash shell, you can put this in ~/.bash_profile:

export SPLUNK_HOME="/opt/splunk"

SplunkTrust
SplunkTrust

Please note the addition of the line in the middle:

$ cd /opt/splunkforwarder/bin
$ . setSplunkEnv
$ ./splunk status

SplunkTrust
SplunkTrust

On the server where you are trying to run ./splunk status set the environment variable using export.
