I am running Splunk on Fedora Core 12. How do I configure Splunk to show up in the Service control applet? or register the file as a service?
i.e. service splunkd status
You can run the enable boot start command:
As root, run:
$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk enable boot-start
To start splunk as another user, use -user parameter to specify which user to start Splunk as. For example, if Splunk runs as the user splunker, then as root you would run:
$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk enable boot-start -user splunker
