Team,

I've installed Splunk Enterprise free version in my machine since i am learning splunk, installation was successful but getting error whevever i launch spulnk.

===========
Splunk> Another one.

Checking prerequisites...
Checking http port [8001]: open
Checking mgmt port [8080]: open
Appserver port 8001 conflicts with http port.

Would you like to change ports? [y/n]:

I also, tried to cheange the port but did not help me, could you please help me here.

Hi nnandi,
it seems like you have another instance that uses port 8001, check using netstat -lntu command.
did you installed over another Splunk installation?

Bye.
Giuseppe
