Deployment Architecture

I have sudo splunk user access, but why am I getting error "Could not create Splunk settings directory at..." with my command to reload the deployment server?

Hi

I have the sudo splunk user access. I am trying to reload the deployment server under $SPLUNK_HOME/bin with the following command:

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

in which I am getting the following error message:

An error occurred: Could not create Splunk settings directory at '/opt/new_directory/splunk/.splunk'.

Can anyone suggest me what's wrong with my command for reloading the deployment server?

The splunk user probably does not have write access. Need to check permissions on the directorie(s)/file(s).
