Developing for Splunk Enterprise


New Member

Hi All,

Using C# SPLUNK SDK to send logs directly to the indexer on port 8089.
It gives me an error when trying to connect to the indexer - The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.
Doesnt seem happy with the certificate being used.
We are using the default DefaultSplunkServerCertificate with SplunkCA as the root.
Could that be the reason?

It worked fine however on our dev instance where we had installed a local SPLUNK indexer.
We had worked with same default certificates over there.

The only difference seems to be that application server and dev SPLUNK indexer are on the same domain while for the test instance they are on different domains.

Any suggestions please?
