Maybe someone here could help me as i have issue on starting the SPLUNK forwarder.
Here's the full error upon trying to start the forwarder

Checking prerequisites...
Management port has been set disabled; cli support for this configuration is currently incomplete.
Checking conf files for typos... Done
All preliminary checks passed.

Starting splunk server daemon (splunkd)...
Error loading logging config file

Timed out waiting for splunkd to start.

You should be able to see more specific errors in /opt/splunk/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log.
Share some of the log if you're not able to determine what the problem is.

  1. Could you please share some more information from splunkd.log
  2. Could be a possibility something is wrong with log.cfg file < PATH: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/log.cfg >
