Hi, I have had this problem twice now on two different computers.
I install debian/ubuntu
Then I use the .deb file from splunk.com - the newest you get when you start your trial
I then make a VM based on a distro of ubuntu/debian and install
Everything workes fine, I use my own user, not the root user to install
I follow the steps of https://www.bitsioinc.com/tutorials/install-splunk-linux/
Splunk starts and works fine. No problems..until I restart the VM. Then localhost:8000 and the external ip both stop working and splunk web gui is not possible to connect to.
I use the same account both for installation and for login when restarting
What am I doing wrong? Other VM's don't report problems on the machine, its only splunk, and only after restarting of the vm. The VM itself has internet and works fine, its only splunk that has issues.
