web.conf not working for dhfile in 2048 encryption

Setup the web.conf using dhFile at 2048 encryption

web.conf
dhFile = $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\auth\splunkweb\DH2048.pem

Here is the command to generate the key

openssl.exe gendh -out "c:\program files\splunk\etc\auth\splunkweb\DH_2048.pem" 2048

After set it up, splunk web will not start without any error in the log file.

Have to add the double quote for the parameter value in dhFile

dhFile = "$SPLUNK_HOME\etc\auth\splunkweb\DH2048.pem"

Just an additional comment, if one wishes to utilize the dhFile setting in server.conf, on a windows host, Splunk may not start unless there are quotes (" ") around the setting. I added that to another post as well:

Maybe it could be inserted as known issue or a bug?
