How can I disable password change request at first time login to Splunkweb?
Kinda annoying... 🙂
IF this is a new install on the the same server, then you can just run a script with a short name that copies some saved files. The script needs to do the following:
Copy a previously configured passwd file to splunk_home/etc/passwd
Copy a previously configured splunk.secret file to splunk_home/etc/auth/splunk.secret
Copy a previously configured server.conf file to splunk_home/etc/system/local/server.conf
Note: The server.conf file key needs to match the other files, and the server name needs to match the server. You will have the same password, which is a security risk, but you can always change the password later.
The one touch solution would be to script the install with the above plus Masa's input.
Genti! You probably forgot this trick a long time ago. Honestly I didn't remember this post. But, I remember somewhere I wrote it down. Now I know here I wrote it down 🙂
