I'm trying to run the splunk CLI client using a remote server uri. The remote server is live and listening on port 8089, and the client has access to port 8089 on the server (verified using telnet). However, when I tried to run the splunk client using the
-uri http://[my splunk server]:8089 option it immediately returns with the error message "
Splunk is not running, and it must be for this operation. To start splunk, run "splunk start"". I've also tried adding
allowRemoteLogin = always to
server.conf without success.
You forgot the
s in the
https uri (splunkd only accepts SSL connections).
-uri https://[your splunk server]:8089
