Getting Data In

Forwarding and receiving - Error occurred attempting to remove a tcpout input from Splunk Web

Hi guys,

I configured my all-in-one Splunk instance to forward data to another search head by using an tcpout:9997 at outputs.conf. Then I removed the config file manually from Ubuntu command line.

However, I found data from my all-in-one Splunk box still forwarding to the other SH after reboot.

So I checked Forwarding and receiving setting from Splunk Web. I found the previous setting still there. Please see the attached screenshot for details.

Is there a way to remove those two forward data configurations from either Splunk Web or CMD?

Could any one please help?

Cheers,
Vincent

Hi everyone,

I used btool find a configuration in one of my apps has a tcpout setup at outputs.conf.

So I removed the configuration and restart Splunk. Issue is now resolved. 🙂

Hi robinsonk,

I assume your Splunk is in a Linux environment as well?

You can use btool to find all configurations at outputs.conf.

Something like ./splunk cmd btool outputs list --debug | grep tcpout

Find the configuration you don't want. And manually delete the configuration from outputs.conf...

Hi Windows can use btool as well. It is basically the same. Just remove ./ at the beginner of the cmd.
