Splunk Enterprise

License manager on different VLAN

Path Finder

Hello to everyone,

We'd like to set up a Splunk Test environment using the same license we are currently using in Production environment. The reason we want to do so is we want Test environment be representative of Production environment, so we need a distributed environment in Test too.

Test environment will be on a different VLAN respect to the one on which Production is located. Is it possible to do so? Is it enough to only open firewall from test servers to IP and port (8089) of License Manager?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

This is possible way to do it. Couple of things which you need to do:

  • FW openings test -> license server tcp/8089 (or what port you are using)
  • same pass4SymmKey in general stanza on all servers which are using the same LM.
