Getting Data In

SPLUNK Universal Forwarder on Windows Server Core

I have several domain controllers, running the core version of Windows Server, reporting these errors in the splunkd logs:

01-30-2018 03:36:50.596 -0700 ERROR ExecProcessor - message from ""C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\bin\splunk-regmon.exe"" splunk-regmon - startDriver - StartService failure for splunkdrv!

Error = 1060

I would appreciate any help resolving these. I'm assuming since it is the "core" O/S, there is something locked down or missing that is required for SPLUNK to gather the data.

Run "Repair' or reinstall the Splunk Application

For me a reboot helped.

You can also check the user permissions.
