I have to reinstall Splunk on a different drive(from C:\ to D:) on our Windows 2003 domain controller.
When I tried to install again I've encountered these errors:
Splunk installer was unable to enable Windows App
Splunk exicode = '2'
I closed it,it continues and encountered the 2nd error:
Splunk installer was unable to start Splunk services
Please make sure you have provided the correct username and/or password,and the user you are trying to run Splunk as has the correct privileges. Exicode='1'
I've checked sevices.msc and splunkd and splunkweb are listed, but unable to start.
I have tried to install using the domain administrator account,and a user account that was given administrator privileges but both unsuccessful.
Now even when I tried to uninstall Splunk,splunkd and splunkweb doesn't get removed from services.msc, even after a reboot of the server.
I am encountering the same issue with 4.3.2 I have tried a lot of different things (checked alternate machines, tried 4.3.1 etc) all running with admin rights. Can someone please post the remedy.
SO do this:
1) Start > Run > services.msc 2) Find Splunkd 3) Right Click properties 4) Go to Log-on Tab 5) Re-fill in the: This Account Information 6) Click Apply 7) Click Ok 8) Start the 2 splunk services after allowing log-on services.
Having the same issue. I even logged into the server with the newly created splunk service account with Domain Admin priv and still have this message. Exitcode = 4
Splunk does not require a reboot to uninstall if Im not wrong.I simply uninstall the previous version of Splunk at C:\, before I attempt to install it again on D:\
