Installation

How do I resolve these errors during start up of Splunk 6.2?

Path Finder

Checking conf files for problems...
Improper stanza [dhcpd_server_dhcprelease] in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/unix/default/tags.conf, line 30
Your indexes and inputs configurations are not internally consistent. For more information, run 'splunk btool check --debug'

When I run splunk btool check --debug, I get these errors

To solve the problem, I double checked the output of splunk btool check --debug | grep -i improper. I found out that there are two configuration files which define [dhcpd_server_dhcpreleases].
1. /opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_nix/default/tags.conf
2. /opt/splunk/etc/apps/unix/default/tags.conf

I know that we shouldn't change any entries in "default" config files but, if I changed the [dhcpd_server_dhcpreleases]to [eventtype=dhcpd_server_dhcpreleases]in both config files, the error Messages are gone.

Hope that helps.

This solved the problem for me. I did not have /opt/splunk/etc/apps/unix/default/tags.conf. I only changed the entry in Splunk_TA_nix/default/tags.conf and that worked.

reinstall your splunk 6.2.
I had the same problem with my splunk6.2 version I have changes to make another version "splunk-6.2.0-237341-Linux-i686.tgz" that I installed without removing the other, and that is ok because when I run ./splunk btool check --debug, I have the following:
