Hello All,

I have just installed splunk from .deb package with no errors
and i'm trying to run it. It's first time so i get this error when i try to use "./splunk start --accept-license"

Cannot start; missing essential directory: /opt/splunk/etc/licenses
Checking critical directories...Validating databases (splunkd validatedb) failed with code '11'. If you cannot resolve the issue(s) above after consulting documentation, please file a case online at http://www.splunk.com/page/submit_issue

Any help is really appreciated!

Thanks.

I re-downloaded package and it worked now. However i was checked md5 after my first download but i think there was a problem about my package installer.

Anyway this problem has been solved.

Thanks again.

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
