Connection from license slaver to master

Hello guys,

is any slunk license slave able to report to a license manager without any authentification or key?

Also from this slave is it possible to connect to the splunk API port (also port tcp:8089) which is not desirable?

Thanks.

in splunk 6.* and recent, the license slave has to share a pass4symmkey with the license-master.
and the license slave instances have to be able to reach license-master on port 8089 (api port)

Make sure that the original pass4symmkey is the same in their server.conf under [general] by default.
(beware, the clear string will be encrypted after a restart, so it may look different across instances, as they encrypt differently)

see http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.6.1/Admin/Serverconf

Thanks a lot yann, does this require local admin credentials or license master ones?
