I'm starting with settingup splunk in my local vagrant box. I dounloaded tar ball and uzipped. From inside the directory on running
./splunk start splunkd gives
Checking mgmt port : open
Checking configuration... Done.
Checking critical directories... Done
This is the part where it hangs and never returns back. Looks like some silly configuration to index only very small of data. Can anyone help?
I have the same problem. Guess you are using a mounted volume for your splunk index/db.
config.vm.synced_folder "splunk", "/opt/splunk"
That does not work. Try Going into Virtualbox settings and use a bigger VM disk, something like /home/splunk. I made it work that way.
