Installation

After upgrading from Splunk 6.1.1 to 6.1.9, does the jbridge no longer start for Splunk DB Connect 1?

Hi,

I upgraded to Splunk 6.1.9 (from 6.1.1) last night, and Splunk DB Connect 1 has stopped working - the jbridge won't start. I upgraded to DB Connect 1.2 and java 1.8.6, but it still won't start. Getting the following error in my jbridge.log:

Anyone? The path is correct for java and Splunk is running otherwise.

Premature end of file? That makes me think file system corruption. I'd double check your JRE and JDBC files, and probably re-install them.

jus in case verify that you are using the Oracle java, not the openjava.
