I have installed splunk universal forwarder on solaris10. When I am trying to start splunk, it's giving me invalid arguement error. Could you please advise?
I am using
./splunk start --accept-license
anything else need to be added?
Definitely reinstall. If you used a package and you reinstall and it still doesn't work, use the tarball. I always use the tarball.
Thanks for your advice. Will the steps below be sufficient to install splunk fully on solaris? I mean after extracting the splunk file to a directory, does it get installed directly or do we need to run any other commands in solaris like package add etc?
tar xvzf splunk_package_name.tar.Z -C /my install directory path $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk start --accept-license
That is how I do it. The only other main thing to consider is what user will do this. The easiest thi is to use 'root'.
