Installation

Issues installing Enterprise Addition on EC2

I installed Splunk on an EC2 instance.

I saw the login page on port 8000 but when I tried to login I got a server error.

I am not sure what I should look at.

t2.micro probably is too small.  I use a t2.medium for my sandbox.  100GB isn't enough, either.  Try 300GB.

The message means Splunk is trying to index a non-text file and is informational.  It should not prevent login.  You can delete that file to clear the log message.  Use less or more rather than vi to view log files.

There should be other log messages explaining why you can't log in.

I used t2.micro instance. I installed version  downloaded version

splunk-8.2.6-a6fe1ee8894b-Linux-x86_64.tgz and I untarred it.

I have a UNIX volume of 100Gb.

Inside the file splunkd.log:

The file '/home/ec2-user/splunk/var/log/splunk/.sp lunkd.log.swp' is invalid. Reason: binary.

What instance type did you use?

What server error did you get? 

Did you check $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log?
