We have Splunk 4.1.4 on Redhat Linux. We also have the PCI Compliance Suite Installed
Everytime I login I get the red error bar complaining about a lookup issue. I did see another similar 'Answer' but it wasn't quite the same issue. I am fairly new to splunk so here is what I have found so far.
From the logs;
ERROR LookupOperator - The lookup table 'windows_name_lookup' does not exist. It is referenced by configuration 'source::(MonitorWare|Snare|WinEventLog)...'.
The word windows_name_lookup is found in these files;
[root@splunk opt]# grep -R windows_name_lookup *|more splunk/etc/apps/SKB-windows/default/transforms.conf:[windows_name_lookup] splunk/etc/apps/SKB-windows/default/transforms.conf:[windows_name_lookup2] splunk/etc/apps/SKB-windows/default/props.conf:LOOKUP-name_for_windows = windows_name_lookup signature_id OUTPUT name splunk/etc/apps/SKB-windows/default/props.conf:LOOKUP-name_for_windows2 = windows_name_lookup2 signature_id,Sub_Status OUTPUTNEW name splunk/etc/apps/SKB-windows/local/transforms.conf:[windows_name_lookup] splunk/etc/apps/SKB-windows/local/transforms.conf:[windows_name_lookup2]
I can see the lookup table is referenced with the following;
[windows_name_lookup] filename=windows_names.csv [windows_name_lookup2] filename=windows_names_substatus.csv
Those files do exist on my system;
[root@splunk opt]# find . -name 'windows_names.csv' ./splunk/etc/apps/SKB-windows/lookups/windows_names.csv [root@splunk opt]# find . -name 'windows_names_substatus.csv' ./splunk/etc/apps/SKB-windows/lookups/windows_names_substatus.csv
Any help would be appreciated..
You probably need to make sure the lookup (or all lookups) are exported from the
SKB-windows app to
global. This is a bug in the app that it isn't. You can do this either in the Manager GUI, or you can add to SKB-windows/metadata/local.meta this:
[lookups] export = system
I tried this with no luck. The GUI also shows the loonkup as "Sharing - Global"
