Trying to run a batch file to add a log file to splunk. Works fine if I run it locally but not from a remote computer.
This is the line I'm having trouble with:
\\172.25.30.30\Splunk\bin\splunk.exe" add oneshot "\\172.25.30.30\shared\splunk\reports\name\Server.log"
I tried to add:
But I still get the same error:
In handler 'oneshotinput': unable to open file: path='\\172.25.30.30\shared\splunk\reports\name\Server.log' error='Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.'
admin and pass are the correct credentials to Splunk.
Anything I am missing?
normally you should uses the
-uri https://splunkserver:8089 option if you want to use a remote cli command. See docs http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.2/Admin/AccessandusetheCLIonaremoteserver also did you enable remote access in
server.conf on the remote server?
I enabled remote access and changed to:
"C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\splunk.exe" add oneshot "C:\Users\myuser\Documents\splunk_data\reports\name\Server.log" -uri http://172.25.30.30:8000
and I get "Not found" but I can't figure out what is not found. The path the the files is correct and tried to use remote path as well but no luck.
I found another way to do it. copied the files to the remote server and use monitoring the folder. So I don't need the oneshot add anymore.
I just learned that the
add oneshot is run locally on the Splunk instance you're running it. This means this should be listed in the docs as well as not supported remote command.
@piebob and @ppablo_splunk could you please verify this and have the docs updated? Thanks 🙂
just passed this on to our world class docteam! thank you, oh mighty SPAMHAMMER @MuS !
ahah at least now I know why it didn't work! thanks guys!
