path = opt/splunk/splunk_data
maxVolumeDataSizeMB = 2000000
homePath = volume:primary/3rdIndex/db
coldPath = volume:cold/3rdIndex/colddb
thawedPath = $SPLUNK_DB/3rdIndex/thaweddb
maxDataSize = auto_high_volume
When attempting to run splunk, it results in the message:
Problem parsing indexes.conf: Cannot create index 3rdIndex: path of homePath must be absolute ('opt/splunk/splunk_data/3rdIndex/db')
What's strange is that I have other indexers with the same stanzas in indexes.conf, except that on those, the volume definitions were split to a separate indexes.conf. Any ideas?
Prepend a slash to your primary volume path and try again.

There's no telling how many times I overlooked that simple mistake. Thanks!
