I am trying out Splunk on Windows Server 2012, version 6.6.3 and attempting to do a scripted lookup with a python script. My actual script (makes HTTP call, returns json, I parse and return csv) works with my own installation of Python 2.7 but when I try to run it with the built-in Splunk version I get ImportError: No module named Site
I've searched and found a couple similar posts about this but what has me scratching my head is if I run "C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\python.exe" test.py I get
ImportError: No module named Site
Now, the only thing in test.py is the statement
If I run "C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\python.exe" -S test.py I get the expected output
This is a sanity test script of course, just to see if I can get it to do anything I'd expect. So what is going on with the -S (where I'm telling python to ignore site-packages I believe) vrs. not having that arg and I get an error?
Is there something wrong with my install? With a simple print statement I'd expect the built-in Python to work without issue but it does not.
Any ideas?? Thanks in advance for any input on this.
