cannot connect to splunk

New Member

I installed splunk and the echo's from install script all looked good. I ran ./splunk start and the echo's all looked good, emphasis on port 8000: open 8089: open, and lastly, get to splunk at http://servername:8000. When I try to access http://servername:8000 it hangs. netstat -an | grep 8000 returns *.8000 ... LISTEN and servername.8000 ... ESTABLISHED. ps -ef | grep splunk
shows a python script running and 2 splunkd's both running on 8089. I don't know what to do from here. Was an entry in /etc/inet/services supposed to be established with install script? I have no port 8000 entry in services.

Tanks, Kenison.

Sounds like a firewall issue. Do you use iptables or similar? Can you connect to port 8000 locally on the Splunk server?

Yeah, there is no firewall. The daemons run, but I believe splunk cannot run scripts through NFS. Re-installed to local and it works. Thanks!
