Getting Data In

Couldn't uninstall Splunk Enterprise from Windows 2012 server.

Path Finder

Hi All,

I have installed Splunk Universal forwarder & Splunk Enterprise (6.6.6) on a windows server machine. However, i don't need Splunk enterprise now on this machine. I uninstalled Splunk Enterprise application from control panel, however, i could see the 'Splunk' folder under program files directory. When i try to delete respective folder (460MB), i m getting error message of "This action can't be completed because the file is open in splunkd" and "This action can't be completed because the file is open in 52775fd4.rbf".

Looking forward for your support.

Regards,
Dinesh Raja
