Getting Data In

Splunk Azure Marketplace Instance


I have created 5 instances of splunk azure marketplace standalone instances. I am unable to ssh in to 4 of the machines. Any guidance on this will be helpful. As well i observed when an azure vm is stopped and started the splunk service does not come up and hence it is not resolvable over https.

You need to gain access to the instances over ssh first - This forum is not the place to help you with that aspect.

However, you seem to suggest you have performed the splunk install on all 5 already. Did you configure splunk to boot on start?

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!

Thank you for replying. I posted this issue here because i did not know where to reach out for the issues with Azure Marketplace Splunk Instance.

When i say i installed 5 instances what i mean is... Wel,l here is the context. I created a Splunk instance and it was working fine for 4 days, i ingested some data and played around. But when i stopped and started the instance it never came back up on https, so i assume there was no configuration made for reboot. And i wanted to configure reboot. So I tried to ssh into the instance and it did not let me in.

So to continue my experience with Splunk i created one more instance and it is resolvable over https and ssh as well. Currently I am working with this instance.

But to troubleshoot why I am not able to ssh into the first machine, i put in support ticket to Microsoft and we had a troubleshoot session but still we could not ssh in to the machine. However i create one more instance to see if i can ssh, it was resolvable over https but i could not ssh. I went ahead created one more and am not able to ssh.

So all I am trying to figure out is why it is not letting me ssh. However I am able to ssh in to the 2nd instance that i created.

Any guidance on where to reach out for the appropriate Splunk team will be great.
