I have two search heads that are behind a load balancer in Splunk 6.1.4. They work fine when accessing via the load balancer, but if I try their individual URL to login into respective search head, I am unable to do so.
Here is my scenario:
One search head is a master license server and the other search head is its slave. If I want to see the license usage information and log in via load balancer, I do not know which search head I will be directed to. If the load balancer directs me to the slave, then I am unable to view the license usage info since the slave does not have it, only the master does.
So in this scenario, it will be helpful if I can selectively go to the master server via direct http link URL.
The web.conf looks like below:
mgmtHostPort = <10.3.4.6>:8089 httpport = 8000 enableSplunkWebSSL = false updateCheckerBaseURL = 0 server.socket_host = 10.3.4.6
I am trying to access the URL http://10.3.4.6:8000 but it does not work. What am I missing here?
I have similar setup and since we're using a Load balancer, the firewall rules for the Search Heads are configured to allow connection only through the load balancer IP/ CNAM. So, that's the reason the Search Head is not accessible directly.
IMO, you've two options:-
I need license file information where it shows the license expiry date, type of license etc. Splunk fetches this information from $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/licenses/enterprise/. I installed this app but unfortunately it does not provide that kind of information.
