Splunk Enterprise

Error while installing Splunk Add-On for VMware



I'm trying to use the Splunk Add-On for VMware with the DCN OVA. 
The installation process is done according to the docs, but when trying to configure the DCN for data collection, I'm getting the below error:

"You are attempting to configure the data collection features of this system, but this has not been enabled. to enable this system to be used as a data collection scheduler, add the "splunk_vmware_admin" role to the admin account."


The admin role has the correct permissions and roles assigned to it, but I'm still getting the error.

When I used the "OVA Metrics" the configuration process finished as expected, but I would like to use the one without the metrics. 

Any idea?
