Greetings:

I inherited a splunk instance.   

We use CyberArk to manage our passwords  Web GUI and CLI.  

Here is my problem both passwords in CyberArk allow me successful login to both interfaces.

For the CLI , I log in as the splunk user and run some commands and I am prompted for the username: admin

password: XXXXX

The passwords fail to log in.

i.e.

is the admin account managed somewhere else ,other than CyberArk ?

Hi @jcorcoran508,

You can use any CyberArk user that has administrative privileges. You don't need to use "admin" user. "admin" user is Splunk local administrator user, it shouldn't be used since you are using CyberArk
