Rolling back error

Puu

None of the solutions on here work. I tried running as an admin but still same error. I could install it on a different laptop without any problems. What can I compare between these 2 machines? Also, on the machine it is not installing, in the programfiles\Splunk\etc\system\local there are 2 CONF files(authentication and user- seed). Any suggestions?

Hi @Puu,

Did you follow the instructions here: https://community.splunk.com/t5/Installation/Install-issue-on-Server-2016/m-p/540173/highlight/true#...?  What did the log say?

Cheers,

Hey Jo,

I can't find any log files. I can only get the two conf files which have my credentials. Do I try to get the logs before the roll back happens?

Hi @Puu,

That's the entire log?
