Splunkweb process on Windows will not start

New Member


I'm hoping someone can help with this issue.
In my environment I have a splunk search head/indexer server and a deployment/heavy forwarder server. On both servers the splunkd process is starting up no problem.
The splunkweb process however is not restarting.

The servers are windows 2008, splunk is version splunk-5.0.4-172409-x64-release.msi

Restarting from the command line gives -
C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin>splunk start splunkweb debug
Checking http port [8000]: open
Starting splunkweb...
Splunkweb: Starting (pid 5260)

Timed out waiting for splunkweb to start.

The splunkweb process is visible for a few seconds but then disappears.

In the windows application event log we have a python service event

Python could find the service class in the module

: 'module' object has no attribute 'SplunkwebP

In the windows logs system events we have

The Splunkweb service terminated with service-specific error Incorrect function..
eventid 7024

The web-service.log does not get updated on attempting to restart splunkweb.

Any help would be great.

There is nothing in the splunkd.log around the time of attempting to restart splunkweb

And what does the splunkd.log say in $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log?
