Splunk 8.0 upgrade webserver not starting


We have 7.3.1 setup with systemd. On upgrade 8.0 stopped running webserver and although logs showed its talking to our other splunk instances, we can't get the web browser to work. Netstat not showing port 8000. We reverted back and went with init.d setup which worked fine. Any advice as we want to stay on systemd.

You can check the web_service.log in /opt/splunk/var/log/splunk/web_service.log
I had a lot of error related to Python 3.0.
