Has any one seen this issue while installing the splunk forwarder in the Freebsd 13.3 ? or any idea why we are getting this ? I am trying to install the splunk forwarder 9.0.2.


This appears to be your first time running this version of Splunk.


Splunk software must create an administrator account during startup. Otherwise, you cannot log in.

Create credentials for the administrator account.

Characters do not appear on the screen when you type in credentials.


Please enter an administrator username: admin
