NO, I am completely new installation. Maybe my OS lost some lib or something... 😞

Have you recently upgraded to v4.2.1 from a previous Splunk version?

I had a similar problem when I upgraded with the wrong user account (a different one then I used to originally install).

Are you seeing any errors in your web_service.log or splunkd.log files inside of $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk at the time when you see this failure?

If so, it would be a good idea to edit your post to include what you are seeing in those files.
