First Time Running Error - Mac OS.

Path Finder

Trying to install and run for the first time on my Mac Mini.

Here is my error:

Williams-Mac-mini:bin williamgage$ ./splunk start --accept-license
This appears to be your first time running this version of Splunk.

Please file a case online at http://www.splunk.com/page/submit_issue

I've checked file permissions, and made sure that everything is Read/Write for myself and the admins.

I would love to know what's going on!!!

Is the read/write permission also granted to the user running Splunk? Check /Applications/Splunk/etc/splunk-lauch.conffor the OS_USERsetting to see the user that will run Splunk - most likely it will be splunk

Please chown the directory to the user:group and try to do what you were doing.

Once I chown for the admin group, all is well!
