Splunk Enterprise Security

Any idea how I can troubleshoot this indexes.conf config?

Builder

All,

I have this indexes.conf and added a frozen archive. The path is fully readable and writable by the Splunk user account. But when I add this config stanza the indexer fails to start. Just starting with this so I am curious what area some areas I should check.

  • Are you starting Splunk from the shell?
  • Are there any errors presented there?
  • If so, what are you seeing?

Take a look at:
$splunk_home/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log

There are several other log files in that directory that may be worth looking at including crash dumps.
