Getting Data In

splunk fsck repair fails with "Process delayed by # seconds..."

Loves-to-Learn Lots

I recently performed a data migration to correct some mistakes made by the person who built our environment. Afterward, I found I had to run `splunk fsck repair` due to errors that are preventing splunk from starting. After running the command with "--all-buckets-all-indexes" or "--all-buckets-one-index --index-name=linux" it stops without seeming to do anything.

After it stops I get, as an example

Process delayed by 56.174 seconds, perhaps system was suspended?

Stopping WatchdogThread.

We have four indexers in a cluster. I've put the cluster master in maintenance mode and stopped splunk on all of the indexers. I'm running the command on a single indexer since the data is shared via NFS. One thing I haven't done is unmount the share on all of the other indexers.

What is the cause of this error and what do I need to do to move past it?
