Splunk Enterprise

Why am I getting "Unspecified upload error. Refresh and try again." trying to upload a log file in Splunk Light?

I'm using Splunk Light. First run at uploading a simple and small text ".log" file on Linux RHEL/6 OS, but I am unable to upload this file for SPLUNK evaluation.

Effort to upload a file manually through file upload online page file manager (SPLUNK upload page). Burrowed down to /var/logs/.log
Was able to see preview of logfile in SPLUNK.
Stepped through all default steps.
Submit step returned this error "Unspecified upload error. Refresh and try again."
Refresh does not repair the error. This is reproducible at every attempt.

Time delta between gui menu and action a few seconds.
Reviewed relevant (?) question/answer posts without a successful resolution.

Do not know how best to troubleshoot this error.

Please advise how best to resolve this snafu?

thanks .

Were you able to resolve your issue and search log data in Splunk Light?
Have you gone through the add-data product tour? You can find the product tours menu under help section (in top right).

On premises. NON Cloud.

Thank you for your reply. I managed to resolve that particular issue. I HOPE I resolved it cleanly.
Now an additional issue has occurred that I will try and trouble shoot today. I was able to upload data text file (log file data).
I was unable, it seems to complte the "indexing". There was such a long delay, I believe a Segfault occurred (log data). Will try again today. Im no expert at linux, certainly not with SPLUNK.

thanks again.

Are you using Splunk Light Cloud, or an on-premises installation?
