Deployment Architecture

Best practices for deployment server: make sure app exists

I have a case with a deployment server where I renamed an app but didn't update the serverclass.conf.

What happened is that Splunk restarts and does log an error in splunkd.log about the missing app.

I would like to check ahead of time to make sure I don't restart Splunk or reload with a buggy serverclass.conf.

Has anyone written such a checker?

Do this:

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk reload deploy-server

Hi @woodcock . I did a test today with a missing class (test using Splunk 6.6)

Your session is invalid. Please login.
Splunk username: xxxx

Login successful, running command...
Reloading serverclass(es).

There was no reported error that I was missing an app. I had actually renamed an app.

Splunk allowed me to restart with the missing app.

Bummer. That is the only possibility.

Other than maybe btool, which will not classify (just report).
