Strange issue. Whenever I try to run a dbx query or try to view a db via Splunk DB Connect->Database Info I get an error claiming the DB is not enabled. However, when I view the External DB Connection via Splunk Web Admin console splunk things the connection is enabled.

I tried restarting Splunk but issue remaings.

Any thoughts?

Sometimes DB Connect has some trouble flying straight, so to speak.
When you access database and database input configurations it Does matter how you get there. For example: If you go from the Launcher page to the Manager to the Inputs then the changes you make do not go to the dbx local folder.
The short story is that you have two copies of the input stanza for that connection in different local folders.
Because of this, I have a strict habit of manipulating all dbx inputs from the dbx page.
