Post Server Rename weirdness

New Member

We performed renames on several servers and am seeing them all show with a weird issue. It seems that there are still lingering traces of the old server name. I have searched adn ready, however, no luck with my specific situation. Thanks!

Error Example:

Message=Splunk could not get the description for this event. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupt.

Got the following information from this event:

Check the files in $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\system\local on the forwarder -- the old hostname is probably still present in one of the config files. Check server.conf and inputs.conf in particular.
