Getting Data In

Why am I getting "ERROR BTreeCP - failed: failed to rename... Access is denied"


Has anybody ever had this error? If so, can you explain the meaning of it? Thanks

These sort of messages generally points to bad install of forwarder. such that Splunk is installed/owned by Root, but running account is different. Therefore, you internally get these sort of messages as access denied,or can't rename etc.
