I want to send indexed data to another server but I'm running into an error of unable to create/find path. Q: Is this a permissions issue? Q: Maybe this is a syntax error? ….. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you!
Info: - Windows 2016 environment - I have two servers setup with UNC paths of \\server01\hotwarmstorage and \\server02\coldstorage that use a service account credential (ie svcSplunk) to gain access. - Splunk is installed using the SYSTEM account. - I've tried to use the UNC path and also mapped the storage drives to Y: and Z: on the indexers and master - While on the indexer and in CMD I can do y: to access the network path
Errors: 1) Failed to create directory 'Y:\hotwarmstorage\index-test\db' (The system cannot find the path specified.); 2) \\server01\hotwarmstorage\index-test\db' (The specified path is invalid) 3) I've tried a non-credentialed network path \\server03\splunkstorage and I get an error '\\server03\splunkstorage\index-test\db' (Cannot create a file when that file already exists.); Master indexes.conf attempts Attempt 1): [volume:seam_test_hotwarm] path = Y:\hotwarmstorage
