Hi,

When trying to Run DMC (ha ha), I've noticed that it's failing to get the introspection data from the kvstore.

05-22-2016 17:52:08.996 +1000 ERROR KVStorageProvider - An error occurred during the last operation ('serverStatus', domain: '2', code: '5'): Failed to connect to target host: 127.0.0.1:8191

There must be something incredibly trivial that I'm missing here - I've set the Splunk Enterprise box to have a KV Store, but haven't created anything in a collections.conf (as it's not clear what needs to be set up for the distributed management console to work).

There's likely something obvious here...hints appreciated.

I'm an idiot.

Problem was that mongod copied the server.pem which expired last week; as per another note in Answers I found:

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk createssl server-cert -d . -n server

And that created another server.pem; likely this is related to the tech-note which Splunk sent out talking about expiring certificates.

Restarted splunk after making a new server.pem, all good.
