I'm facing an issue to start fresh Splunk instance in my Mac machine.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
/Applications/Splunk/bin/splunk start Splunk> Now with more code! Checking prerequisites... Checking http port : open Checking mgmt port : open Checking appserver port [127.0.0.1:8065]: open Checking kvstore port : open Checking configuration... Done. Checking critical directories... Done Checking indexes... homePath='/Applications/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 http://www.splunk.com/page/submit_issue
The solution worked. This is something which I face first time.
Well I have to work on the solution implemented and it's side effects on indexed data on machine as mentioned in accepted answer of your provided link.
Yes it's just resolves your issue but it is not a long term solution... As its defeating filesystem locking checks
If you are concerned about your data in any way then it's not recommended to do this. This variable basically drops all filesystem lock checks and any data you store might or might not be retrievable....
