Hadoop Connect - Scheduled Export Failure

New Member

I successfully created 65 different scheduled exports using Hadoop Connect without an error, but only 29 appear in the scheduled exports list. The remaining 36 all produce the following error when I attempt to re-add them. I checked HDFS and see the directories. Something seems messed up on the Splunk side.

Has anyone run into this before? If so, how did you fix it? I don't see any CLI tools that might allow me to wipe these out and start again.

It sounds like the other searches may of not finished.

If you have enterprise support, can you open a ticket up and message me the case number? I'm the SME for the Hadoop Connect stuff and can take a look at it.
