I am following the guide here : https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkCloud/7.0.0/User/ForwardDataToSplunkCloudFromLinux
At some point it sais i need to install splunkclouduf.spl file which i have downloaded from my cloud instance using :
splunk install app <full path to splunkclouduf.spl> -auth <username>:<password> . Problem is whenever i try to run that command i get : Not Found . I am 100% sure the path and credentials are correct . What am i missing ? Or is this a step i need or shall i skip it ?
root@host:/home/devuser/splunkforwarder/bin# ./splunk status
splunkd is not running.
I think i got it. I must have messed up something and splunk did not start . I will start from scratch and see what happens . Thanx.
