I have some ubuntu VM's created in Azure, I have installed the Splunk Forwarder and Splunk Add On For Unix, on my main Splunk instance installed the Splunk App for Unix and set the server to listen and set things running, and it's kinda working, but not how I expected.
When I look for Hosts in Splunk App for Unix the servers are showing, and the disk space is being recorded, but nothing else is, no CPU or Memory which were the two indicators I wanted to monitor.
In the Splunk Add-on all options are enabled (including cpu.sh and vmstat.sh) and on the monitored server $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_nix/local/inputs.conf everything has been set to both 1 and 0 (to double check my stupidity of 0/1 being false) but still nothing is shown for CPU and memory, is this a limitation of Azure or am I doing something wrong?

I installed 7.0, and understood that after an initial period it would downgrade from the Enterprise Trial to the Free version, I guess I am now at that stage.
The main use I have for Splunk is interrogating several databases using DB Connect, after "downgrading" to the free version I am now presented with the above error message when I try to create a new identify or connection, is this a limitation of the free version, or is it because I have not correctly installed a free licence (if there is such a thing), if this is a limitation of the free version will the existing connections eventually stop working and stop pulling data into Splunk from the various databases?
