I need to understand what could be causing these errors. Seeing them frequently on one of our sytems.

Hi simpkins1958,

As @p_gurav already said, check the file system or folder permissions.

Running Splunk on Windows is a pain and you just hit one of many issues - for a long list of issues see this post: https://answers.splunk.com/answers/516059/what-are-the-pain-points-with-deploying-your-splun.html

cheers, MuS

Can you check folder permission?

I am too facing this error in some of my indexers. When I look at the path mentioned in the error, indeed that particular directory does not exists.
