Splunk Search

WARN : Eventtype 'xxxxxxxx' does not exist or is disabled. Errors coming from indexers

hi all,

I have had a number of scheduled searches that failed, all returning the same errors.

WARN : Eventtype 'xxxxxxxx' does not exist or is disabled.
WARN : [INDEXER 1] Eventtype 'xxxxxxxx' does not exist or is disabled.
WARN : [INDEXER 2] Eventtype 'xxxxxxxx' does not exist or is disabled.
WARN : [INDEXER 3] Eventtype 'xxxxxxxx' does not exist or is disabled.
WARN : [INDEXER 4] Eventtype 'xxxxxxxx' does not exist or is disabled.

Could someone explain why the indexers were returning the errors when all eventtypes are located on the search heads ?

cheers
Paul

Search heads push a bundle of knowledge objects to the indexers, to enable the indexers to perform searches.

These errors are typically caused by a tag (in tags.conf) that refers to an eventtype that is not defined / disabled / in another app and not shared / not readable by current user.
