We recently cloned a VM to a new one. Changed the references of the old host name to the new one in the following files:
/etc/collectd.conf - changed Hostname /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/system/local/server.conf - changed Servername /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/system/local/inputs.conf - changed host
Restarted both collectd and Splunk on the new server. Still, the entity did not show up in the Insights for Infrastructure portal. There are no errors in both /etc/collectd/collectd.log and /opt/splunkforwarder/var/log/splunkd.log files.
What else can be done to correct this issue?
Yes. In addition to following the steps you outlined, I also had to restart the SII collector to see the list in the portal. Hope this helps somebody. Thanks for your help @dagarwal_splunk
In addition to following these steps, I also had to restart the Splunk collector. Then, I was able to see the entities and data in the portal. Thanks @dagarwal_splunk !
