Hi

I have a Synology NAS (RS212) with an ARM Processor (mv6282) but I can't get the ARM Forwarder to work. I get the Error Message above when I try to start it:

bash-3.2# ./splunk start
/volume1/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunkd: error while loading shared libraries: ld-linux-armhf.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/volume1/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunkd: error while loading shared libraries: ld-linux-armhf.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Splunk> CSI: Logfiles.
Checking prerequisites...
/volume1/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunkd: error while loading shared libraries: ld-linux-armhf.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Checking mgmt port [8089]: /volume1/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunkd: error while loading shared libraries: ld-linux-armhf.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Illegal instruction (core dumped)

Any Ideas?

it's trying to call a libc that does not exist. Or better: it's calling a libc that exists but it's not under the name the splunk executable expects.
this one is actually easy to fix. You need to create a symbolic link so the library ld-linux.so.3 also answer as ld-linux-armhf.so.3:

ln -s /lib/ld-linux.so.3 /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3

Then problem solved. Assuming the architecture of your NAS is at least ARMv6 it will work beautifully. My synology unfortunately is ARMv5 so I get an "illegal instruction" error when I run the splunk executable. Check the architecture with:

uname -a
