Getting Data In

Why I'm unable to add new DCN to Splunk Scheduler?

Hi,

I'm trying to get logs from a vCenter server using the DCN. On the Collection Configuration page, I'm trying to add a new DCN (and or) VC, but after filling all the relevant fields, I can see a "loading" pop-up for last than a second, and then the pop-up just disappears and no any DCN or VC is added. 

Does anyone saw this behavior before?

So it was a splunk user permissions issue on the app's directories.. once I've added the required permissions I was able to add DCN.

Could you please confirm how you were able to sort out the permission issue. I'm faced with the same challenge

@alexokey it was a while ago, I do not really remember. sorry.

You can try owning the parent splunk directory to avoid that. usually it works, at least for me.

chown -R splunk:splunk /opt/splunk/
