I had deleted a rouge log file which had become too large and caused the root partition to fill up. The log file has since been regenerated by the application and is now no longer shipping to spunk.
I have tried to "splunk restart -auth USER:PASSWORD" but receive the bellow error.
splunkd is not running.
