Getting Data In

Any idea why I cam getting global config errors in my HEC config?



I have the following inputs.conf on a clean install of Splunk. But when I restart the instance I get a message that says "All the tokens are currently disabled. They can be enabled in the Global Settings." What config am I missing here?

# inputs.conf
  disabled = 0
  index = pcf
  indexes = pcf
  token = aaaaaaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaaaaaaaaa

  disabled = 0

did you create that inputs.conf manually? if so, in what directory? my guess is that your disabled=0 setting is in conflict with a disabled=1 somewhere else...and losing.

This could help you track it down, but I think HEC settings may get a little convoluted.

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk btool inputs list http --debug | grep disabled

It might be worth putting your inputs.conf in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/splunk_http/local ... or maybe at least enabling the http stanza there?
