New Member

Hello, everybody,
i have installed Splunk locally on my laptop and set up user and password during the installation. Unfortunately, this data does not work in the login window. Does anyone know what I did wrong?

You can try removing the file $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/passwd and on the next login you will be prompted to set up a new user.
