Could not load lookup=LOOKUP-browser ???

Builder

Hello All,

I just upgraded to the latest version of Splunk 7.2.5 and now when I search anything i recieve errors stating "Could not load lookup=LOOKUP-Browser"

I'm not sure what that is, I never used a "Lookup Browser" table or anything of the sort prior to this update so i'm not sure where the message is coming from. Can someone please point me in the direction of how to get rid of/ mute this message?

Also If you have any input on what LOOKUP-Browser is, i'd appreciate it! thanks!

Hi,

It looks like you had Lookup definition, Lookup file or Automatic Lookup with name Browser in your splunk configuration and now splunk is not able to find that lookup file but in configuration file it is still pointing to non-existing lookup or lookup file or lookup definition permission has been changed and due to that automatic lookup is not able to find that lookup.

If you have CLI access then check lookup props and transforms configuration using btool

Thanks harsmarvania57, It ended up being a very old entry under my search/ props conf file that had this entry. Thanks! (I'm trying to mark your response as the answer).
