Hi,

we have an API that we are starting to send data to HEC. When I place 

 

 

[httpServer]
crossOriginSharingHeaders = "http://<FQDN>:<PORT>"

 

 

in the server.conf under /etc/system/local, I get an error upon restarting Splunk. 

 

Checking prerequisites...
Checking http port [8000]: open
Checking mgmt port [8089]: open
Checking appserver port [127.0.0.1:8065]: open
Checking kvstore port [8191]: open
Traceback (most recent call last):

setDefault('port', int(port))
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: '4200""\nhttps://127.0.0.1:8089'

What would cause Splunk from starting?

Thanks in advince,

ok I figured it out.. It does not like the quotes around the hostname. After removing them, Splunk was able to restart.
