Hi p_gurav,

Originally, right after installing, Splunk User had ownership of the /opt/splunk folder. In troubleshooting, Ichanged ownership to root. Results: The same. It does not work. Changing ownership to root did not fix the isse.

Additionally, I installed version 6.3.12 in another box and it worked fine. It seems to me that there is something wrong with 7.0.1 32 bits.

Any other solutuons to this isse???
