I was trying to restart the splunkd process on deployment server and i landed up getting this error
"ERROR: The mgmt port  is already bound. Splunk needs to use this port"
please do let me know the action to be taken to resolve this .
Assuming linux, from the CLI:
$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/stop fuser -k 8089/tcp
thank you. i had to forcekill the process using the port 8089 to restart splunk.
Did you use
fuser or some other command?
i used kill -9 to force kill the process.. i would like to try the above command if the issues happens next time, thank you.
Accept on an answer to close the question.
fuser -k 8089/tcp works well. Thanks
What if on windows?
Port to linux.
OK, Ctrl-Alt-Delete -> Task Manager, then kill all processes that start with
splunk and kill any
