Splunk Search

Why does search with subsearch fail if earliest and latest is used?

The following search does not produce any results:

index=* earliest="04/19/2022:15:00:00" latest="04/19/2022:17:00:00"
| fields _time, index, sourcetype | head 1
| eval mail=[| makeresults | eval mail="\"abc@cde.com\"" | return $mail]


The search and the sub search produce each one result.
The search returns one result as expected when the  the earliest and latest option in the base search are omitted.

That's strange - I ran a similar search on Splunk 8.0.1 and it gives me the correct search range, but on 8.2.1 I get this

What version of Splunk do you have?

I am on 8.2.3 and the time range fits:

Hi

Your search is valid. Are you sure that you have events on this time slot?

Yes, the first search alone produces exactly one result as stated in the question. In case it is executed on a less busy instance the time range must be expanded by changing earliest and/or latests.

Can you find anything interesting from search.log via Job Inspector?

No, just one error message in the 1700 lines which also spears if the earliest and latest are deleted and the search runs as expected.
