Just wondering if there is anyone out there that has successfully managed to add in multiple new inputs to DBconnect when using Rising Column mode??
I have been attempting to do this today without much success.
Editing the db_inputs.conf file is OK, and the new inputs will show up in DBConnect, but even if I add in a corresponding file to hold the rising column value (even tried copying and editing an existing one), DBConnect complains saying "Error(s) occur when reading checkpoint"
I have multiple instances that I need to update, each with up to 30 inputs that need to be configured - I'm hoping there is a way that I can do this without having to edit each input to update the rising column value.
Appreciate any tips / advise people can offer.
Hi @ianhar ,
Are you using WIndows box?
If so - check the permissions on the below folder:
I have noticed that for some reason in windows environment - when you first go to this folder, it will say you don't have access and prompt you to gain access. For some reason - doing this updates the permissions for Splunk user and prevents it from being able to write to that directory.
I was having issues whereby SplunkDB was not able to update the files and kept ingesting duplicate data.
I have not re-tested doing the bulk updating of the checkpoint files since making this discovery - but it's possible it could be a related issue.
