Why am I encountering the error when attempting to run Splunk in Docker for Windows?

New Member

When trying to run Splunk in Windows via LCOW, I get errors.

docker pull --platform linux splunk/splunk:latest

and running with

docker run --name splunk --hostname splunk -p 8000:8000 -d -e "SPLUNK_START_ARGS=--accept-license" -e "SPLUNK_USER=splunk" splunk/splunk:latest

I get the following error output in the logs:

Copying '/opt/splunk/etc/openldap/ldap.conf.default' to '/opt/splunk/etc/openldap/ldap.conf'.

An unforeseen error occurred:

        Exception: <type 'exceptions.OSError'>, Value: [Errno 1] Operation not permitted: '/opt/splunk/etc/openldap/ldap.conf'

This appears to be your first time running this version of Splunk.

Running Docker using Linux containers works as expected, but I need to run using Windows containers for other applications.

Check if the user you are using to install the splunk has right permissions on the folders

/opt/splunk/etc/openldap/ldap.conf.default

Which user you are using? and can you list the directory permissions on the splunk installation directory (from base)?

This occurs when running as both root and splunk users. I'm pulling from Docker, which I believe is using this Dockerfile. Are you asking me to pull the Dockerfile and omit the Splunk installation section, run with -ti and check the permissions on that directory?
