Hi,

I am trying to run a python script on my universal forwarder which send data to splunk cloud instance. I have added the path in inputs.conf and there is not events found in my index.

While checking on splunkd logs, there shows a error "The system cannot find the file specified".

what could be the problem?

Hi @gcusello ,

The issue is fixed now.

The forwarder was searching for python3.exe where i have python.exe in my splunkuniversalforwarder folder. So it couldn't find the file. 

The issue is fixed as I renamed the file name.

Thanks for ur solutions @gcusello

Hi @varshini_97,

I suppose that you already checked the filename and the path.

Did you checked also if the user you're using to run the script has the grants on that file and folder?

Ciao.

Hi @gcusello ,

I have checked the filename and path.

Regarding the grants for the file, I am unable to add my splunk user in the security tab of Access window.

Hi @varshini_97,

as you can suppose, the user used to launch the script must have the execution grants.

Try to execute it using the same user and see if you still have the issue.

Ciao.
