I have installed an app on the forwarder with scripted input. 
It's throwing an error while starting Splunk using 'Splunk' user

Hi @hpmist198 ,

Can you please check what ownership is assign to Splunk? If proper ownership is not assigned to your path of Splunk, you can give proper permission by running the command
chown -R splunk:splunk /opt/splunk

--------------------------------------------------------

If this helps your like will be appreciated 😀

Yes ownership and permission looks ok for me. It's owned by splunk user and group.

And this script has execution bit up?
You can test it by command:
/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk cmd /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/AWSMData/bin/awsmeta.sh and check why it don't run.
