I was initially using the Splunk Enterprise Download Trial. On Feb 10th that license expired and now I'm using the Free Splunk license. I got a several Pool and Indexer warnings/violations.
Now I can't seem to search for any data without getting an error message.

How do I clear this problem so I can get back to using splunk?

You either wait until you've got less than 3 license warnings in a 30 day window, or contact support to get a reset license that will clear your warnings. Or you reinstall Splunk.

Dang. You're too fast. I'm not sure that you will get a reset license for Splunk Free, though. But no harm in trying.
