What does the warning message mean in forwarder management ?

Contributor

Hi Splunkers,
I met the warning message in forwarder management which said "One or more apps are initializing download. Please refresh later to see the accurate status of these downloads".

Later I refreshed browser, but it was appeared again.
And I also restart splunk, but it was same.
What does this message mean ?
How is it not displayed ?

Thank you for your help.

I'm seeing this as well, even though all classes/apps show as successful.

sunrise - Have you attempted to restart the splunkforwarder to which the apps are being downloaded?

I have the same issue in Splunk v.6.0.3, "splunk reload deploy-server" and "splunk restart" did not help. As for suggestion: "Have you attempted to restart the splunkforwarder to which the apps are being downloaded?" - there is no easy way to find which forwarder is doing it...

Also you can check Reload the Deployment server

/opt/splunk/bin/./splunk reload deploy-server

I don't know why this happened. But in Splunk V6.0.1, that doesn't happen.
