Unable to install splunk standalone in HPE Ezmeral Container Platform

New Member

Hi Team,

As per the document, we deploy 2 pods which are the Splunk operator and Splunk Standalone.

The Splunk operator is deploying and successfully running.

The Splunk standalone is giving the issue and is not able to deploy the pod.

the error is:

Back-off restarting the failed container

Readiness probe failed

The pod boots halfway and it fails

Please find the logs below:


homePath='/opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/audit/db' of index=_audit on unusable filesystem.
Validating databases (splunkd validatedb) failed with code '1'. If you cannot resolve the issue(s) above after consulting documentation, please file a case online at


non-zero return code
