I have run into this issue a couple of times, where an end user is unable to access the remote inputs on e.g.

remote event log collections
remote performance monitoring

when you click on one of those you get a web page saying

404 Not Found

After reviewing the end user install, I see that Splunk DB Connect 1 ver 1.2.2 or lower is installed on the Splunk Instance with the issue. As the app is not rated for Splunk 6.4 according to Splunkbase it should not be on the system, but it is.

Way to fix, is you have to remove the entire app from the Splunk File Structure, restart splunk and you should be able to see the remote inputs again.

Disabling the app will not correct the issue, you will need to remove the entire contents of:

%SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/dbx

from the splunk system and restart splunk service for the changes to take affect.
