Installed Splunk forwarder 6.6.2 on an OpenStack controller node using the rpm package. We are now having problems with SSL certificates when going into Horizon. We are using Red Hat's OSP 10 (triple O) environment, which has RHEL 7.3 on the controller.
1) Does installing the splunkforwarder rpm change anything with the SSL environment?
2) The first time you launch the forwarder by type ./splunk start, does that change the SSL environment?
Only if your stuff was stored (or linked) in
/opt/splunk/ which would be absurd.
So, the issue here turned out to be a colleague installed Tasker at the same time the Universal Forwarder was installed. The pip removal of the Tasker application resolved the SSL issue with OpenStack Horizon.
Thank you to all who helped with this.
