My license master (which is used as dmc,deployment server,Cluster Master,Deployer) is throwing a lot of messages like below:
Scheduled backup job failed.The next scheduled backup job will run in an hour. 12/5/2017, 3:46:39 PM Backup job "Default Scheduled Backup" has failed. Error: expected string or buffer 12/5/2017, 3:46:35 PM
Help me to identify and resolve this issue.
This is a known issue for ITSI 3.0.X
2017-07-03 ITOA-8115 ITSI app throws Errors during installation ITSI components on License server
I had the same issue. Mine was a dedicated license server.
I update inputs.conf in SA-ITOA/local/ dir with below settings.
disabled = 1
disabled = 1
This solved the issue. As this is a license server there is no need of backup here.
Hope this helps.
NOTE: If license server is same as search head do not update these settings.
I presume you are running ITSI?
I think I would be tempted to raise a ticket with Splunk for that issue, as it seems it should be configured out of the box
However, the first thing I would check is that the KV store is running ok.
As per the document http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/ITSI/3.0.0/Configure/InstallSplunkITServiceIntelligence
I have installed only A-ITSI-Licensechecker, SA-ITOA, and SA-UserAccess on License master.
Please find the below kvstore status:

Does License Master requires to run kvstore and backup jobs?
