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