ERROR TcpOutputProc - LightWeightForwarder/UniversalForwarder not configured. Please configure outputs.conf.

Team,

In one of the Unix servers where SplunkForwarder is running, I have the below log in the splunkd.log file. Our web service is down due to this and Splunk is not working. Please see the log below and let us know, what should be done to make it running. Meanwhile, I will try to raise a case too.

From the log, I don't see any indication that you have an outputs.conf configured. The only TcpOutputProc are the default whitelists. I'm not sure what you mean by your web service being down due to this. Could you provide your outputs.conf file?

Hello,

I am having the same issue as well. Here is my outputs.conf:

[tcpout]
server=myserver.com:9997

Thanks.
