Hello splunkers,
I'm trying to visualize one of my .tsidx file with the splunk "walklex" command, in order to see my segmentation improvements. Here is my code (Windows command line)

set SPLUNK_HOME=C:\Program Files\Splunk
cd %Splunk_HOME%\bin> splunk cmd walklex %SPLUNK_HOME%\var\lib\splunk\my_index\db\db_xxxxxx_xxxxxx_3\my_tsidx_file.tsidx ""

And i got the followind error : ERROR: enable to open C:\Program wrc=[-4,2]

Does anyone has an idea please?

Hi

I tried the walklex command on a tsidx file in a hot db folder with Splunk running and received the same error as you reported. I then copied the file to another folder (C:\Temp) and reran the command using splunk cmd walklex C;\Temp\my_tsidx_file.tsidx "" and the command worked. So I'm suspecting the rc[4,2] relates to the file being locked.
