Hello, i wanted to build a distributed search environment with splunk with the trial license. But for example, every time i wanted to configure one of my two instances as search-peer, and after I put all my data in, I get a error message. Nothing else come to me in mind why this should not work, except the trial license problem.
when you speak of Trial version, are you meaning the Splunk Enterprise version in the first 60 days or after?
because the trial version is a full feature version, instead after 60 days it becames a Free version that hasn't the Distributed Search feature enabled ( for more info see at https://www.splunk.com/en_us/software/features-comparison-chart.html ).
If you need to test a Splunk distributed environment, ask to your Channel Manager (if you're a Splunk Partner) or to you're Splunk sales to have a Trial Version.
I have checked it through the link you have published, and I have seen that I have the Free Splunk version, where the distributed search feature is not supported. So I will need to ask for a new license.
Anyway, thanks a lot for the quick and helpful answer!
