Hey Splunk support,
Can you direct me on how to get my free license reset?
I thought I was running the free version but apparently it was an Enterprise trial which expired. I'd like to activate the free version again so I don't lose the data I've collected.
However, when I went back to the free license the violations are still there preventing the search function from working. The only solution I've seen is to get a license reset from Splunk support directly.
Generally you aren't likely to get a reset license for a free version of Splunk, the best way to bypass the violations is to backup your indexes, delete, reinstall and copy the indexes back over.
I am having kind of the same issue here.
I don't know why my free licence is expired, I suddenly have the following message :
Error in 'litsearch' command: Your Splunk license expired or you have exceeded your license limit too many times. Renew your Splunk license by visiting www.splunk.com/store or calling 866.GET.SPLUNK.
I did not exceed my 500Mb quota, as last time I checked I barely used 5% of it.
Is it possible there is a problem with splunk's licencing system?
What sould I do to have my splunk usable again?
Did you check under Settings > Licensing if the license is not expired? Normally its about 60 days.
