Splunk Enterprise

Splunk on Docker error


Moving my instance from Splunk Enterprise on vmware to a docker container. It runs okay with the volumes I created but when I copy my /opt/splunk/etc contents from the old server to migrate it to the Docker Container I get this error. Splunk support is saying something is wrong with my docker-compose but I am able to build other containers with it no problem. I did find that status code 401 in the documentation for the HEC.  I think it is a permission issue but have gone through the whole /opt/splunk/etc/auth file and it looks good. Any ideas?
