Getting Data In

Why am I getting "This path does not exist or is not accessible." using Splunk Web in Splunk Light to monitor a certain folder?

I just installed Splunk Light 6.2.5 on CentOS 7.

Using the web interface, I go to AddData screen, then Monitor, then Files and directory
I'm trying to monitor the following folder : /mnt/external_drive/<folder> and I'm getting the error :

This path does not exist or is not accessible.
  • the /mnt folder has 777 permissions.
  • the external_drive belongs to user jmg and to group jmg
  • user splunk (which is running splunk) belongs to group jmg
  • Doing su - splunk, I can navigate from / to the desired folder.

How can I debug this ?
Any advices?

I feel dumb, but it worked using :

/mnt/<external_drive>/<folder>/*

This is a very very old thread. It's highly unlikely that its participants are still on this forum.

If you have a similar problem, just post a question with a description of your issue in a new thread, possibly putting a link to this thread for reference.
